"Bold. Original. Profoundly moving. Dancing with the Dead is the tale of two people from vastly different backgrounds, two survivors caught up in historic forces beyond their control. Stripped of everything that made them who they are, they come together in courage and common humanity. They, like Faulkner's Dilsey, endure. And so will their story, the most unconventional, unexpected love story of this or any other year."
- Dan Bronson, author of Confessions of a Hollywood Nobody

"Dancing With the Dead is a remarkable phenomenon: a moving, harrowing, historically-accurate first published novel by a 69 year old man who has lived a full life. It is also beautifully written, with a real ear for speech, both formal and informal. Who can say but that one would have had to have been an actor, a horseman, a writer, the son of the diplomatic service, and one who had experienced personal tragedy to be able to write such a story. Parker has been and done all these things, and Dancing With the Dead is as good as it gets."
- Steve Bodio, author of Querencia,
A Rage for Falcons)

"With one eye on the epic and one on the deeply personal, Jameson Parker writes with the elegant ferocity of a polo match. Dancing With The Dead effortlessly balances the voices and experiences of vastly different lives in very different circumstances, until a startling convergence of truth and fiction shows us that the human heart sometimes has the power not only to transcend, but to unify. If Jim Harrison and Katherine Anne Porter had somehow teamed up to pen a novella, this might well have been the result."
- Malcolm Brooks, author of Painted Horses
