'Birkerts examines Shirley Hazzard's The Transit of Venus, a novel. He considers Hazzard's novel as one of the great works of recent times. He found it structurally intricate, emotionally resonant and wiser. Hazzard enriches the texture of the novel with its episodes and probes the nature of romantic love.' (Editor's abstract)
