KIRKUS REVIEW

In this second major novel, Hamilton Basso turns back the leaves of social history to reveal a vigorous portrait of Pompey's Head as the Confederacy came into being. Marked by immediacy, rising emotion, and action, this novel brings to life a southern town, in the full richness of character and contemporary opinion. Slow, at times, but compensated for by the book's honest treatment.
