Editorial Reviews

Eden Ross Lipson
IN her new novel, Pat Barker is concerned with two kinds of death - the transient one-time-only death of the flesh, and the living death of long-term unemployment.... Her vision is worldly and in the grand tradition of political fiction that she has entered so ambitiously....'The Century's Daughter'' has its flaws. The writing is uneven. The author seems at times to be rushing her fiction....But Barker's energy is ample compensation. -- New York Times
