A utopia in which "Orange County has benefited from restrictions on corporate size and strict controls over land use and pollution. Although the novel shows the near impossibility of imagining a living utopia (that everyone plays softball pretty constantly may not be an entirely convincing synecdoche of a wholesome lifestyle), a sense of earned freshness and relief permeates its pages." - SFE (online). Anatomy of Wonder (1995) 4-367. Sargent, British and American Utopian Literature, 1986-2009. A fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#155878).
