Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0939149990, Paperback)A novel ahead of its time (1931) in many ways due to its quiet feminism and its insistence that women could have fun, and quest-plots, as well as men, this was acclaimed as one of the most important books of the year it was published. Mythical and historical at once, the story follows Erif Der in her journeys through the world of her time as she searches for atonement, reconciliation and cleansing. Lyrical descriptive writing, lucid treatments of politics and war and intensely intimate observation of the needs and deeds of human beings fill this book, which manages to be earthy and transcendent at once.
