Description

‘There is nothing else quite like Ice‘ Doris Lessing

Set in a frozen world that is gradually being devastated by ever-encroaching ice, Anna Kavan’s masterwork follows one man’s pursuit of a mysterious silver-haired girl to the ends of the earth; to the end of everything.

‘A brutal novel of a frozen post-nuclear dystopia. Just the most magnificent book … hugely enigmatic, a genuine novel of the unconscious and a masterpiece’ Frank Tallis, Guardian

‘Few novelists match the intensity of her vision’ J. G. Ballard

‘She is De Quincey’s heir and Kafka’s sister’ Brian Aldiss
