"Everything I've always wanted from an adventure, and then some!" - Samuel R Delany

"[Motherlines is] a pioneer exercise in women's fantasies of independence, skill, freedom. It has a robust, earthy beauty. She has a genius for grasping ideas and dreams that are in the air and making them concrete and dramatic in her fiction." - Marge Piercy
