This modern day epic is grounded in the history of Northern California in the first half of the twentieth century and peopled by comrades of many classes and cultures and by lovers both male and female. Yet Mei-li's central odyssey remains one of inner discovery. In Confessions of Madame Psyche, Dorothy Bryant has created a character which is so honest in her search for truth, growth, and spiritual understanding that this quest becomes inherent to her survival.

"Mei-li's story is breathtaking and heartbreaking. . . . It is in the specifics of time and place that Bryant roots the book's magic. It is in her characterizations that the magic convinces. . . . Confessions of Madame Psyche describes a life that explores, in ways that only fine fiction can, the differences between myth and illusion, between real psychic gifts and false ones, between fake prophecy and true grace, between righteous hunger for human improvement and limited abilities for its achievement. It does this with consummate ease and without any indication of effort. A beautiful story has, very simply, told itself." --Denver Post "Confessions of Madame Psyche [is] fascinating and beautiful." --Ursula K. LeGuin "Intricate, appealing [and] profound." --Women's Review of Books "Mei-li s story is breathtaking and heartbreaking. . . .
