Reviews

A complex treatment of time... An absorbing view of history. * New York Times Book Review *
Enough plot twists and conspiracy-making ingredients to satisfy the most demanding aficionado of the genre. * Irish Times *
Fascinating... Powers has a remarkable ability to find metaphors to illustrate the brain processes... terse and heartbreaking. * Los Angeles Times Book Review *
Grand fiction... Prisoner's Dilemma is magnificent. * The Nation *
I love and admire this book... I cannot give an adequate sense of its many marvels... One of the most beautiful and baffling dialogues in recent fiction. * Boston Globe *
