A Comment From The Author

by John W. Cassell on 11/5/2007

Shortly after Odyssey's release, I received this email from a person I know to be a very discerning reader. As he later bought several copies to give as Christmes gifts, I know he meant them. I thought I'd share them with you : Odyssey's greatest strength is neither its captivating storyline nor superb development of the sometimes odd, but very human characters. It draws its magnetism from the author's incisive eye and impeccable sense of the history, and political forces of the time. This well-crafted tale resonates with a clarity and perspective of arguably the most colorful, and perhaps the most significant time in our country's recent past. Odyssey's characters are driven to their ultimate actions by forces both globally external and painfully internal. They are neither pawns of history, nor creatures of free will, but an artful combination of both. I found the book maddeningly impossible to put down, and chock full of knowing smiles at its accurate references to long-forgotten details of the time of hippies & rednecks, Anglos and Chicanos, and doves and hawks. Bravo, Mr. Cassell, on a five star first novel. M. V. Dooley
