"The Killing Ground is quite a book. It is a moving novel, people by fully realized characters, about the liberation—in the best sense of that abused word—of a remarkable woman."—Walker Percy
"Every word of The Killing Ground rings true, every character is fully formed, and best of all is the sense running through it of time co-existing, the past richly evident in the present."—Anne Tyler
