London: MacGibbon & Kee, [1972]. Octavo, boards. First edition. "A brilliant work, utterly convincing in its portraits of people trying to get by in a world they are powerless to influence or control" - Anatomy of Wonder (1987) 4-188. "Six interweaving tales set in twenty-first century New York, a scene of high unemployment and heartless 'welfareism.' The book deals convincingly (and unusually) with the marginalized members of a future society. The result is moving and at times harrowing: a masterpiece." - Pringle, The Ultimate Guide to Science Fiction, second edition, p. 372, "A brilliant work, utterly convincing in its portraits of people trying to get by in a world they are powerless to influence or control. The most eloquent display of the pessimism that became newly acceptable in New Wave SF." - Anatomy of Wonder (2004) II-346. 1974 Nebula nominee. Pringle, Science Fiction: The 100 Best Novels #66. Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1516-1985, p. 338. Survey of Science Fiction Literature V, pp. 2774-77. A fine copy in a fine dust jacket. An excellent copy. (2962). Item #2962
