What the Critics Say

  • Pulitzer Prize, Fiction, 1993

"Butler's literary ventriloquism, as he mines the experiences of a people with a great literary tradition of their own, is uncanny; but his talents as a writer of universal truths is what makes this a collection for the ages." (Amazon.com review)

    Perhaps. There are some outstanding short stories. One in particular was about Vietnamese intelligence officers who are working with the Australian military. It is about a clash of values with devastating consequences.Other stories set in the United States were less compelling,
