Praise

“An important contribution to the literature of human bestiality unleashed by war.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Like an oral tale transcribed by a folklorist, it has the ring of the eternal to it…. Hatred like this runs deep in human nature and is ever ready to erupt again. Be warned.” —Los Angeles Times

“Extraordinary.” —New Republic
