Stephen AmidonFew contemporary writers are able to evoke the ambiance and drama of our recent past as forcefully as Boyd. Here, he fully immerses the reader in the wartime era, whether it be a brief encounter with a kindly, owlish Freud in a Viennese cafe or a terrifying zeppelin bombing of a London theater…Boyd's prose is often radiant, yet it is a brilliance that serves to illuminate his story…And Boyd's characters are as beguiling as his prose. The cast of Waiting for Sunrise can be as alluringly neurotic as Freud's case studies. The characters spy, lie, betray and kill, and yet never manage to lose their charm.
