About this title


In the ruined, barbaric world of the near future, a lone woman cares for a deserted child and surveys her city's disintegration, the hordes of safety-seeking people, and her own painful adolescence, childhood, and infancy

From the Back Cover:

"An extraordinary and compelling meditation about the enduring need for loyalty, love and responsibility."-- Time

"A brilliant fable." -- Maureen Howard, front page, The New York Times Book Review

"Doris Lessing again presents herself as one of the most intelligent of all modern novelists." -- Philadelphia Bulletin

"The most fluid and suggestive of all her books."

-- St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"A short, easily read novel...part science fiction and part 19th-century realism, its effect is profoundly affecting and mystical... especially moving for those who have responded to Lessing's previous work." -- Houston Chronicle

"A major work, one that well proves her vigor, originality and importance as a novelist." -- Cleveland Free Press
