"This continues Walton's fascinating exploration of what it might be like if people lived according to Platonic ideals but with messy human emotions and urges complicating matters at every turn."--Library Journal "If there's one thing Walton is brilliant at -- and there are roughly 1 million of those -- it's not letting you know quite what kind of story you're in, and leading you to relish the discovery."--NPR
