KIRKUS REVIEW

A modern Pilgrim's Progress, an allegory of humanity at large. A lost body of soldiers marches down through the years and through barren lands. They join forces with a lost cohort of women, both bodies symbolic of man's confusion in post-war years. The social ills of contemporary life, fables of humanitarian, metaphysical import, find voice through various talkers (and when they aren't talking, Komroff is). It may be a reaching out for some understanding of what it is all about, but it says nothing new, and it seems to me to be fairly remote from the average reader's interest.
