Editorial Reviews


Praise for The Silent:

"A ferocious portrait of the Civil War's human toll....There is no doubt that Dann captures, in a way few other novelists have, the sheer bloody chaos of battle."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Dann's breathtaking ambition joins hands with the deep confidence of a writer working at the top of his form."
--Peter Straub

Praise for Jack Dann's The Memory Cathedral:

--Telluride Times-Journal
