Douglas BrinkleyElegant, sparse prose. A literary high mark that deserves a much wider audience. Donald Windham is the Southern poet whose unadulterated prose flows as freely as the Chattahoochee River in springtime. -- (National Public Radio: Weekend Edition)
A novel of Atlanta in the 1930s
Andrew AlexanderAstonishing precision and subtlety. -- ( Creative Loafing)
Washington BladeVirtually flawless.
Dale NealBefore there was Tom Wolfe there was Windham. -- (Asheville Citizen-Times)
Times Literary SupplementUnimpeachably authentic.
Atlantic MonthlyA perceptive study of twisted idealism.
