Product description

Review

‘A dystopian narrative in which the indomitable Oates seems to be flexing new muscles … unrelentingly disturbing’ Observer

‘Immerse yourself in this spooky novel .. the hazards of time travel are vivid and frightening indeed’ New Statesman

‘Prescient, unpredictable … charged by the horrors of our Orwellian era’ Independent

‘Joyce Carol Oates taps deep into contemporary anxieties over the rise of surveillance, totalitarian governments and invasive technology … [she has an] unerring ability to reflect the times in which we live’ Daily Mail

‘Nothing is as it seems in this accelerating swirl of political and academic satire, science fiction and romantic melodrama. At 80, after more than 40 novels, Oates is still casting some awfully dark magic’ Washington Post
