"Mike's magnificent piece on Vietnam is both devastating and exhilarating. Devastating because it recalls to me some of the kids of Kansas, Missouri, Texas and other pastures new; exhilarating because it is a pristine capture of an idea/feeling complex I can now never forget. And did I print it out for safekeeping? You better believe I did."

     -I can't think when I've been affected in a more complex way -- suddenly flooded with memories, faces, conversations, demonstrations, anxious phone calls, KU's sudden closing in the spring of '70, etc., etc. And we still don't know how to face that Dirty War. 

     Mike's sterling piece did affect me profoundly. It may well be the finest single passage we've seen from his ardent pen. Good Lord, how the guy can write! And the heart-stopping truth is, you know it's real -- it's not the rhetoric! It's the feeling finding its exact signs! This guy has greatness that only peeped out in the novel."

-John Willingham
