Editorial Reviews

Douglas Brinkley
Elegant, 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)
Andrew Alexander
Astonishing precision and subtlety. -- ( Creative Loafing)
Washington Blade
Virtually flawless.
Dale Neal
Before there was Tom Wolfe there was Windham. -- (Asheville Citizen-Times)
Times Literary Supplement
Unimpeachably authentic.
Atlantic Monthly
A perceptive study of twisted idealism.
