Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dann is grown up now, hunting for knowledge and despondent over the inadequacies of his civilization. With his trusted companions — Mara's daughter, his hope for the future; the abandoned child-soldier Griot, who discovers the meaning of love and the ability to sing stories; and the snow dog, a faithful friend who brings him back from the depths of despair — Dann embarks on a strange and captivating adventure in a suddenly colder, more watery climate in the north.

Review:

"Lessing's prose is straightforward, uncomplicated and clear. Her characters are complex and vivid — not least the great snow dog Ruff." Providence Journal

Review:

"The odd thing about calling this speculative fiction is that the dilemma Lessing describes has happened over and again throughout time. Imagining how we will begin again is a much more potent act of creative will — and exactly what Doris Lessing has accomplished with this strange and important book." Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
