Posted on August 11th, 2015 by pajamapress
“A book like Uncertain Soldierdoes not go down easily. It burns in your throat with the rising bile of injustice and cowardice and the horrors of prejudice inflicted in war and out. It churns in your gut and then sits like a heavy meal of reality and history. Sometimes getting beyond that all is tough. Karen Bass again, as she did in Graffiti Knight, examines an ill-fated part of our history (her author’s note is an especially enlightening and valuable read) and textures it with humanity that makes it a touching story of distressing times. Uncertain Soldier will blow the historical fiction award juries away with its power.”
