Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Theodore Savage is a dark, strange, and cruelly contemporary tale…The book makes a spirited argument against science and machines, disputing itself viciously to the last word.” Atlantic
“Miss Hamilton always writes forcibly, and her present novel deals with the heart shaking effects of the next war. It might, indeed, be used as a tract to convey an awful warning.” Spectator
