Publisher: Boston : Houghton Mifflin, 1986.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : Fiction : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
"This visionary novel. in which God and Government are joined, and America is run as a Puritanical Theoracy, can be read as a companion volume to Orwell's 1984-its verso, in fact. It gives you the same degree of chill, even as it suggests the varieties of tyrannical experience; it evokes the same kind of horror even as its mordant wit makes you smile." E.L. Doctorow.
