"... a vivid and memorable evocation of wartime Vietnam and the sort of
people who lived out the darkness of the war. Foreign and Vietnamese,
these people were of a time and place almost lost to history yet
never to be forgotten. This is the kind of novel that brings it all
back. Tatjana Soli is a perceptive and talented writer. I was most
impressed by The Lotus Eaters and enjoyed it from start to finish. "
