Editorial Reviews


"Kokio is a wonderful contribution to the increasingly popular genre of biographical novels. Rather thandramatizing the story of a famous figure like Virginia Woolf, FriedrichNietzsche, Sylvia Plath, or Marilyn Monroe, as so many skillfulbiographical novelists have done, Stephen Banks pictures the unfamiliarlife of Neill James, a spectacular woman who was an under-coverintelligence agent, travel writer, novelist, and adventurer. Kokio testifies to the value and power of the biographical novel, which, in thisinstance, does the important cultural and historical work ofresurrecting an early lost life."
--Michael Lackey, author of The American Biographical Novel and Truthful Fictions: Conversations with American Biographical Novelists

"Stephen Banks refers to Kokio, based on the life of Neill James--intelligence agent, intrepidadventurer, writer and, above all, a woman adept at recreatingherself--as a novel based on a life, but that's an understatement. He'saccomplished far more. After ten years of intensive research, Banks hassucceeded in creating a character so believable, so true to life, shejumps off the page of this masterful page-turner of a book."
--Diana Anhalt, author of Second Skin and Because There Is No Return

"Neill James had the rare luck and the rare talent to invent--andre-invent--her life as she lived it. Her 'inventions' often disguisedsecrets; some trivial, others not.Stephen Banks has done a masterful job of reconstructing and revealing that life, weaving it together with astrand of fiction that Neill, doubtless, would appreciate."
--Richard Spence, author of Secret Agent 666: Aleister Crowley,British Intelligence and the Occult
