The Washington Post…the sharply observant McGuinness has filled his novel with quick, witty descriptions of people, places and situations. If the narrator's story is sometimes overshadowed by its historical setting, perhaps that's only right, given these earth-shaking events. McGuinness does more, however, than explore how people acted in this now transformed country. He's captured the way corruption and tyranny warp behavior in any society.
