Overview

'Smile a lot, yes, and then weep a little, and hold your breath, and wonder at the wisdom and the whimsy of it ...depending on how much you bring to it, the book is metaphor, it is fable; it makes a statement, has a moral, looks back at you, from time to time, like a mirror.' -- Theodore Sturgeon, Twilight Zone

'A lively and entertaining fairy tale.'--Publisher's Weekly

'The bittersweet climax not only surprised me, it choked me up a little.'--Peter Stampfel, The Village Voice

'Anyone who has ever doubted the psychological link between fantasy and life will be quickly corrected by this insightful and highly recommended novel.'--Roger C. Schlobin, Fantasy Newsletter

'A depth and freshness of observation that is uncommonly astute and poignant.'--Anne McCaffrey

'Nancy Kress has the true storyteller's Gift--the ability to make her characters and what happens to them so vital that the reader's heart aches.'--Stephen R. Donaldson

'Sprightly and moving.'--John Clute, The Encyclopedia of Fantasy.
