Gollancz S.F., Fiction, Science fiction

'It is now becoming increasingly clear that Dick is one of the most compelling chroniclers of life and love in 1950s California that we have' Publishers Weekly

Mary Anne Reynolds is a young and vulnerable woman, determined to make her own way in the world. But Pacific Park, California, in the 1950s is not really the place for Mary. Her relationship with a black singer offends against the small town's views on sexual mores and exposes its bigoted views on race. This is a powerful portrayal of the claustrophobia of small-town California, and Mary Anne Reynolds is one of the most memorable characters Dick ever created.
