Praise for Gates of Eden...

War is not to be waged lightly. .. Set amongst the turmoil of the Vietnam War at home, seven young rebels unite to plot against it, daring to go as far as rebellion. With a personal story among each of them, Gates of Eden is a fine novel of the period, very much recommended. — Midwest Review

Gates of Eden is no sentimental review or apologia for the Sixties. It's the real deal. Charlie Degelman was there, living his life for keeps, moving at the same breakneck pace as his characters. I know. I was there with him. Don't miss this book.” — Peter Coyote, actor, author, Sleeping Where I Fall

 “Degelman’s boisterous characters take us on a freewheeling ride through the Vietnam antiwar movement. Gates of Eden resonates as a new generation embarks on its own journey of resistance and rebellion.”  — Eric Watson, filmmaker, Pi, Requiem for a Dream, The Fountain

 “Gates of Eden is an important novel. Excellently written and profoundly moving, Degelman explores the tangled relations of a country at war — not only in Southeast Asia but at home, with itself.” — Sharon Dilworth, author, Year of the Ginko
