SF novel: ''picture an off-world Prague at the mercy of an artificial intelligence undergoing puberty, and keen to share it's hormonal traumas. Plagues ravages the population, as if Viriconium were to suffer the fate of Camus's Oran, while terror artists, would-be Dadaists with dynamite, gives themselves over to entropy in a downtown which really dies at night. Lewitt's haunting story of people trying to last one day longer in a city which isn't sure if it wants them around any more is marvelously told and should be read by an appreciative audience'' (Jack Womack).
''her most recent three novels oppose individuals and small groups against worlds whose governance reaches dystopian intensity: MEMENTO MORI (1995) is set in a world run by an AI hugely inimical to human variety and creativity; Inierface Masque (1997), set in a near future Venice, rehearses in terms of high-action intrigue some of the same human issues; and in Rebel Sutra (2000) a genetically engineered elite suffocates another colony planet. Though sometimes drowned in manoeuvres of plot and setting, Lewitt's work has continued to surprise readers with the depths she capably plumbs'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF, 3rd Edition).
