Praise

“A hell of a story…. Werth puzzles out the tormented, self-absorbed Arvin with…intelligent empathy.”–Newsweek

“Perceptive…. Refreshing and instructive…. Barry Werth has told this gifted but unhappy man’s story with sympathy but utterly without sentimentality or special pleading. His research…is thorough and surprising.”–The Washington Post Book World

“Mesmerizingly well-written.”–Andrew Holleran, Out

“Exceptional. . . . I cannot recall a book of non-fiction in the [past] decade . . . that has demonstrated such mastery of the craft.” –Samuel G. Freedman, Chicago Tribune

“Fascinating. . . . A riveting character study. . . . Vividly captures the troubled times and too quickly forgotten life of the quietly courageous Arvin. . . . Werth has written one of the most emotionally engaging and socially relevant books I’ve read in quite a while.” –David Bahr, The Advocate

“Werth’s meticulous account . . . lend[s] the past new life. . . . An important reminder that the world has quite recently been a very different place.” –San Francisco Examiner & Chronicle
