SF novel.

''the chilly belatedness of his first two books -- like all his work they depict worlds caught in the iron claws of a prior authority or Author -- warms very considerably in the third, EHGINE SUMMER (1979), whose title neatly epitomizes the author's abiding central concerns and whose plot -- its protagonist finds that his life in a dying post-holocaust pastoral USA is nothing but a memory interminably replayed, and that he himself is no more than a crystal device replaying those memories on command -- exudes a cruel melancholy. But the story which Rush That Speaks represents in his being (and tells) is powerfully moving; and his sleep at the close (though he will soon be turned on again to play himself) is earned'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF).
