"A powerful, prophetic, mysterious work, a truly extraordinary novel....The insanity of the 20th century...[and] the mystery of the self, explored brilliantly here as it is in her other masterpiece The Golden Notebook....Here is a book not to be read, but experienced."--Joyce Carol OatesA"I read the Children of Violence novels and began to understand how a person could write about the problems of the world in a compelling and beautiful way, and it seemed to me that was the most important thing I could ever do."--Barbara KingsolverA
