Tor Books

A New York Times Notable Book

The Dazzle of Day is a brilliant and widely celebrated mixture of mainstream literary fiction and hard SF. Molly Gloss turns her attention to the frontiers of the future, when the people of our over-polluted planet Earth voyage out to the stars to settle new worlds, to survive unknown and unpredictable hardships, and to make new human homes. Specifically, it is a story about people who have grown up on a ship that is traveling to a new world, and about the society and culture that have evolved among them by the time they arrive at their new home planet.

REVIEWS

Praise for The Dazzle of Day

"Carefully conceived and deeply affecting."--The New York Times

"The Dazzle of Day is a heartbreakingly good book...a rare dream of a book, passionate and lyric. The Dazzle of Day allows us to see our own world, our own present, more profoundly."--San Jose Mercury News

"This miraculous fusion of meticulous 'hard' science fiction with unsparing realism and keen psychology created a vast, bleak, beautiful vision of the human figure--a triumph of the imagination."--Ursula K. Le Guin
