Pollack's Arthur C. Clarke Award-winning feminist fantasy is set mainly in New York's Hudson Valley. (Aug.)
Library Journal
More than four decades after the Revolution, America has become a land in which magic and ritual coexist with daily life. Guardian totems protect suburban blocks; rituals of enactment precede rises up the corporate ladder; and storytellers--the new media stars--keep alive the tales of the legendary Founders, who literally awakened the earth and shattered the technological world. The residents of Poughkeepsie have learned to live comfortably in this empowered world, until a young suburban divorcee receives a visitation and becomes the center for yet another ``reawakening.'' The author of numerous books on the Tarot, Pollack has crafted a powerful--and powerfully funny--vision of a mystical yet modern world. Enlightened and knowledgeable in tone, this recent winner of the Arthur C. Clarke Award for speculative fiction is both a cautionary tale and a paean to the New Age. First published in Britain, this is a priority purchase.
