It has current applications to the posture of the United States in the post-Cold War worldFew recent novelists have managed to manipulate successfully as complex a story ... or to suggest so convincingly changes within a wide range of persons. This terse work can be read in a short time, but it gives one things to think about for long time -- like the assertion that a democracy must walk carefully and not abandon itself to genius. Kansas City Star.The Quarries of Sicily is a novel of ideas -- literate, educated in the classical sense, honestly stated, and for the most part thoroughly pursued..... An eminently satisfying novel. Publishers Weekly.Doulis writes with passion and maturity, and his characters are finely done, humanly flawed, and understandable. Library Journal.The Quarries of Sicily is an excellent novel that tells an interesting story of interesting people, (and) that comments on several aspects of contemporary life, including mans inability to face the unknown world.
