The Passing Bells Reviews


"A capacity to shock, to astonish, and to engage ... written throughout with economy and wit." -- New York Times Book Review "Swift and startling power ... moving ... entertaining ... can absorb you into its fictional landscape as easily as Alice passing through the looking glass." -- Chicago Tribune Book World "Well-written, exciting ... echoes of Hemingway, Graves, and 'Upstairs, Downstairs,' with characters who breathe and about whom one cares." -- Library Journal "Spellbinding. This is really a start-reading-and-don't-stop-until-you're-finished-novel." -- Publishers Weekly "Every twenty-five years or so, we are blessed with a war novel, outstanding in that it depicts not only the history of our time, but also its soul." -- West Coast Review of Books "Fascinating ... a timeless tale of the conflicts that emerge from a violent change. It is a delight to read." -- Cleveland Press
