"Point of No Return is one of the great novels of the 21st century. It deserves a wide readership and serious critical appraisal. Over a half century ago, in his important book "American Moderns - From Rebellion to Conformity," the great literary critic Maxwell Geismar noted that "Our best literary work has come from writers who are outside [the dominant] intellectual orbit, where [capitalist] panic has slowly subsided into inertia." Geismar anticipates Vltchek. Point of No Return explodes from that vital realm far beyond hegemonic control."
- Tony Christini
"Point of No Return is riveting." - Paulin Cesari (Le Figaro)
"André Vltchek is a writer, the real thing, of the same calibre and breed as Hemingway and Malraux."
- Catherine Merveilleux
"Andre Vltchek tells us about a world that few know, even when they think they do. That is because he tells the truth, vividly, with a keen sense of history, and with a perceptive eye that sees past surfaces to reality..." - Noam Chomsky
"This gripping novel blends fiction and autobiography; it reflects the experience of the author as a war correspondent while drawing the portrait of a globalized world coming apart at the seams. A political novel after the fashion of Malraux... it is also a meditation on the state of the world (and of literature), and a raucous escapade to the far corners of the globe." - Le Grand Soir
"Iconoclastic Adventurer: The lives of great reporters are fascinating. Long before establishing his credentials as a poet, essayist, documentary filmmaker and even a novelist, Andre Vltchek, was a journalist. Donning this hat once again, he revisits his years as an intrepid reporter..." - Caroline Mangez (Paris Match)
"Vltchek has written a colourful and elegantly crafted novel with a political stance that will engage some and provoke others but is always heart-felt and sincere." - Lila Rajiva
