Love is made from more than mere blood and flesh.... Tanith Lee is among the most imaginative and thought-provoking authors of our time. Lee has created a classic tale in this unforgettably poignant novel--a beautiful, tragic, erotic, and ultimately triumphant love tale of the future. Life i... s a mystery for sixteen-year-old Jane that she despairs of ever mastering. She and her friends are the idle, pampered children of the privileged class, living in the luxury of a natural catastrophe-remade Earth. A chance encounter with a robot minstrel with auburn hair and silver skin, whose songs ignite in her a desperate and inexplicable passion, until Jane's life is changed forever. Silver is more than just a machine constructed to please, Jane is certain. And to prove it, she'll give up everything. So she escapes into the violent, decaying slums of the city to embrace a love bordering on madness. Or is it more of a thing? Has Jane glimpsed something nobody else dared to see in Silver--not even the robot or its creators? A love that is so perfect that it must be destroyed, because no human can ever compete?

Quotes from The Silver Metal Lover

A rose by any other name
Would get the blame
For being what it is--
The colour of a kiss,
The shadow of a flame.
A rose may earn another name,
So call it love;
So call it love I will,
And love is like the sea,
Which changes constantly,
And yet is still
The same.

I'm not very good at being alive. Sometimes I despair of ever mastering it, getting it right. When I'm old, perhaps.
