Praise

(unknown)
"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." - Cynthia Ozick

(unknown)
"A brilliant tale of the morals and politics of contemporary science. Exciting, moving, and brilliantly written." - Iris Murdoch

(unknown)
"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." - Lewis Thomas
