Praise for this book

"I first read Robert Nathan's Portrait of Jennie as impressionable young man of sixteen or seventeen. It appealed to the nadve romantic in me. Reading it thirty-five years later, I note the clean simplicity of its prose, its economical evocations of character and setting, and its unflamboyant wisdom: 'Yesterday is just as true as today; only we forget'. Portrait of Jennie reminds us of that truth again. An almost perfect little book." - Michael Bishop

"Welcome back, Portrait of Jennie. It touched and frightened me when I was twenty-four. Now, once more, it touches and frightens." - Ray Bradbury

"There is a curious sweetness about this tragedy-a sweetness that comes from Robert Nathan's evocation of Jennie, a tender wise-innocent and muse. This story is a valentine." - Maureen F McHugh

"One of the most durable successes in the fantasy business . . ." - Judith Merril

"Real magic realism from a time worse-and better-than most of us can imagine. Read this, and be enchanted." - Gene Wolfe
