Reviews
"Fiction that wounds and stings.... Sympathy for the Devil is a wonderful achievement, written fluently andperceptively, and with the kind of unsparing intelligence that is rooted in careful observation.... Kent Anderson has outwritten just about everybody who preceded him in trying to make fictional sense out of the war."--Peter Straub, Washington Post
"An ending unlike anything else in war literature ... a nihilist ordeal of such power that comedy and tragedy flow into one another, and you can only watch numbly as your values float away facedown in the river."--Los Angeles Review of Books
