5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! Drives a blade into our current social identity, 25 Dec 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Beauty (FANTASY MASTERWORKS) (Paperback)
I thought that Sheri S. Tepper could not disturb me more than when she wrote "Gibbons Decline and Fall", but she has.
Her grasp of archetypal myth, and her ability to cut to the bone of the apathy of post-modernism and the effects of a culture that has been manipulated into accepting - without raising a sweat - what the news throws at us and what advertising seeks to have us agree to, despite the devastating effects on a future earth, had me in tears! The title of the book is one thing before one reads it - and is something far more profound at its completion.
Yes, Sheri - if one remembers the word in all its profundity one can be truly aware of what is most precious.
My humble thanks...
