Praise
"In Carl Djerassi, C.P. Snow's divided 'two cultures'--science and art--are fused to give us, perhaps for the first time in the American imagination, a novel by a major scientist on the subject of the scientific experience itself."
"A brilliant tale of the morals and politics of contemporary science. Exciting, moving, and brilliantly written."
"This surprising and engrossing novel, from a working eminence in American science, will perhaps add some anxiety to an already uneasy research establishment...It is a nonstop read."
