"Meticulously integrated as a mosaic, The Work of an Ancient Hand presents in lucid prose a mixture of compassion and wonder. No other novel I have read recently can quite equal Mr. Harnack's for its psychological sagacity, its warmth and sobriety, its humor and its wisdom." (Carlos Baker, Princeton University)
"His creative imagination is inventive and original. Mr. Harnack writes with such humor and such flashes of verbal magic." (The New York Times)
