"It's as impressive a work of fiction as I've read recently, on Vietnam or any other subject."--Robert Wilson, USA Today
"Mason's message is simple: The war dead are us--we are them--and, whatever political stance we took with regard to Vietnam, we are all Americans united by one past, one flag, one history."--San Francisco Chronicle
"A moral tale that entwines public history with private anguish."--Richard Eder, Los Angeles Times Book Review
