"The intercutting of...two different narratives effectively conveys how a disturbing mental condition can erupt in the aftermath of nightmarish war horrors." (starred review)
"The book's disordered narration, which will feel familiar to readers of contemporary war literature, complements the author's experience of postwar dislocation....[T]the enduring treachery of memory--the persistence of 'driven insight and unwanted knowledge'--remains the real, unfinished story of THE LONG WALK. It takes as much courage for Castner to confront that memory as it does to face an active fuse."
