Mockingbird, Walter Tevis' 1980 Nebula Award nominated novel is released by Gollancz in their SF Masterworks series. Tevis, who died in 1984, is perhaps best known as the author of The Hustler and The Colour of Money, both of which were made into highly successful films starring Paul Newman. Tevis's other major SF work, The Man Who Fell To Earth was also filmed, with David Bowie in the title role.
"Because of its affirmation of such persistent human values as curiosity, courage, compassion, along with its undeniable narrative power, Mockingbird will become one of those books that coming generations will re-discover with wonder and delight" -- Washington Post.
