THE DAZZLE OF DAY. New York: Tor, . Octavo, printed salmon wrappers. Advance copy (uncorrected proof) of the first edition. THE DAZZLE OF DAY, Gloss' first SF novel, "is set mostly in a generation starship inhabited by a complex familial mix of folk, mostly Quakers, who are depicted with a gravity sometimes reminiscent of the work of Ursula K. Le Guin, especially when Gloss treats her enclosed society as an ecology viewed through an anthropological lens. The ship's arrival on a mountainous and (austerely) pastoral planet is narrated mutedly." - John Clute, SFE (online). A New York Times Notable Book. Winner of a PEN Center West Fiction Prize. Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1986-2009. A fine copy. (#110687).
