• "It is impressive in its ability to draw you in to the battle-scenes... Reminiscent of Hemingway and James Jones... The Fearless Man leaves you desolate and exhausted"

  • "Pfarrer writes with grand confidence...The Fearless Man is a book that unites clear, tight language with painful imagery...Bluntly evokes the horrible etiquette of warfare"

    New York Times Book Review
  • "In its brawling, battle-ready topos and the lyricism of its passages, The Fearless Man harks back to Hemingway...The Vietnam War becomes the forge and test of its combatants' courage"

    Times Literary Supplement
  • "A study of fear and courage... Three perceptive acts in which Pfarrer's complex, engaging characters face their deepest fears"
