Editorial Reviews

"Powers's prose soars like the most magnificent of choirs, memorably capturing the moments of joy and anguish, barrenness and grace, that add up to life."--"Washington Post Book World""If you have children or will have children, if you know children or can remember being a child, dare to read "Operation Wandering Soul."..Dense in knowledge, rich in imagination, powerful in expression, [it] is bedtime reading for the future. Like the stories read to children, this intensely caring novel can help prevent the nightmare it describes, children out too late at night, far from home, lost, the wandering souls of the future, our future."--"USA Today"
