Publisher Comments:

"This epic story is fueled with intense commitment and sensuousness."

LOS ANGELES TIMES BOOK REVIEW

Vida was their star--the beautiful, charismatic radical from the pages of LIFE magazine--the symbol of the passionate rebellion of the sixties. Now, ten years later, the shouting is over, but Vida is still on the run. Staying in Network hideouts, traveling disguised, fearing every glance, she finds her best protection is her distrust of everyone--a lesson learned from past treacheries. And now, knowing the dangers, she finds herself warming again toward a man, an outcast ten years younger than herself.

Review:

"The contemporary novel has increasingly lent itself to the stirring polemics of militant feminism. As a society, we have been shrewedly analyzed by Margaret Atwood, galvanized by the white-hot urgency of Rita Mae Brown, and solemnly preached at by Marilyn French. Now we are being relentlessly politicized by Marge Piercy. It is, however, hard to protest when the novel in which this politicization occurs is so clairvoyant a transcription of the environment we inhabit. As Thomas Pyncheon has remarked, Marge Piercy is one of our most courageous novelists 'just out of love for the truth and a need to tell it.' Amen." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
