‘Few novelists match the intensity of her vision’ J. G. Ballard
No one knows why the ice has come, and no one can stop it. Every day it creeps further across the earth, covering the land in snow and freezing everything in its path. Through this bleached, devastated world, one man pursues the sylph-like, silver-haired girl he loves, as she keeps running – away from her husband; away from the sinister ‘warden’ who seeks to control her; away from him.
‘A raw, brutal tale set in a frozen post-nuclear dystopia … addictive and extremely entertaining’ Guardian
‘There is nothing else quite like Ice’ Doris Lessing
‘She is De Quincey’s heir and Kafka’s sister’ Brian Aldiss
