Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
In this long-awaited novel, Butler revisits familiar themes of a society in 2032 whose very fabric has been torn, and where the basic physical and emotional needs of people seem almost impossible to meet. 30,000 first print.

Review:
"Religion has always been a problem for science fiction writers....[F]ew writers have taken this challenge seriously....Among the notable exceptions are Walter M. Miller Jr.'s 'A Canticle for Leibowitz', James Blish's 'Case of Conscience', Frank Herbert's Dune series, Gene Wolfe's multivolume Book of the New Sun'. Add to these Octavia E. Butler's 'Parable of the Talents'."

Gerald Jonas, New York Times Book Review, 01/03/1999

Review:
"This book leaves little doubt that Octavia E. Butler is one of the finest voices in fiction--period....A master storyteller with a voice that cradles and captivates, Butler casts an unflinching eye on racism, sexism, poverty and ignorance, and lets the reader see the terror and the beauty of human nature. "Parable of the Talents" may be her most powerful work yet."

Sheree R. Thomas, Book World, 01/24/99
