"Much of the novel is devoted to ...analysis....The analysis is predictable Jung, with all the archetypes turning up eventually: the person, the shadow, the anima, etc. Mr. Davies is didactically faithful in explaining each, and while the novel is thus a kind of Jungian primer, he uses the archetypes as a structure on which to build David's [the protagonist's] story. Mr. Davies' message to us all is that we must come to grips with the objectivity of life, otherwise we live in the middle of a great hallucination."
William Kennedy, New York Times Book Review, 11/19/72Review:
"Lucid, concise, beautifully phrased, rich in drama and in relentless penetration of character, this novel is a synthesis of narrative and idea that never ceases to be a superior entertainment as well."
