Author's ninth novel. Speculative fiction on the likely consequences, if the author of Paradise Lost had voyaged with the Puritans to the New World and fled the tyranny of the Old. "Ackroyd's Milton is an extraordinary character whose voice rings out long after the book is closed." –Brian Kenney, Booklist
