Reviews

[Groom] combines military savvy with storytelling skill for a satisfying saga pitting an American railroad tycoon against Mexican revolutionary Pancho Villa...An engaging epic that could be headed for the bestseller lists and then the big screen. This is the big one that fans have been waiting for, and they'll grab it up like they would a delicious box of chocolates.--Michele Leber
Winston Groom proves life -- and fiction -- really is like a delicious box of chocolates. . . . The novel has it all -- heroes, villains, family, rescues, shootouts, cattle, bits of history and much more. And maybe a feature film in its future?--Celeste Williams
Groom's epic narrative is a hefty yet entertaining page-turner, at times funny, heartbreaking, emotional, and brutal. An involving, intricate story vividly told.--Donna Bettencourt
Groom's expansive, rich novel is set in the harsh deserts and mountains of northern Mexico during the 1916 Mexican revolution, with sharply drawn fictional characters in a bloody mix with Gen. Pancho Villa and a cast of true-life personalities. . . . Battles, a tense prisoner exchange, and clever ransom negotiations round out this historically vivid and marvelously complex tale.
El Paso is sure to entertain. . . . To Groom, the public is likely to say, 'Welcome back to the land of fiction.'--Jim Ewing
El Paso has the drama, coincidence and class intrigue of Dickens's Great Expectations in a setting reminiscent of Larry McMurtry's Lonesome Dove. . . . In Groom's capable hands, this history mixes easily into what is at its core a story of family, class warfare, loyalty and the violence of revolution.--Bruce Jacobs
