Fiction. Kress's first novel reminds us how intelligent a form the novel can be, in the right hands. COUNTING ZERO is a keenly apprehended story, written with articulate zest and a voracious appetite for the things of everyday life seen in consummate detail. "This novel ... is a mature, elegant piece of work. Yes, Virginia, there are still some stylists on the Rialto"--Paul West.
