"Tantric sex, horrors supernatural and technological...a heady mix of wild ideas and images, mean and tender, exciting and scary." --San Francisco Chronicle "Engrossing...enigmatic...playful, erotic, and disturbing." --The New York Times Book Review "One of the strangest surrealistic science fiction novels you'll read....It slowly and quietly impresses you with its brilliance." --Tampa Tribune "Powerful...vivid...a novel of great ingenuity and panache." --Washington Post Book World
