"Weird, wonderful, and worrisome." –The Washington Post Book World
"Dear Mr. President
is a war book like no other. It's as if Salvador Dali had rewritten All Quiet on the Western Front
"Wickedly funny and extremely touching....cannot–and should not–be ignored."–San Francisco Chronicle
"A major literary feat. Hudson....is more Kafka than Tolstoy. Like the war at its center, Dear Mr. President
is hallucinatory, fast, and wantonly disturbing, but also a victory." –Men's Journal
"Hudson writes about a pain so vast and shattering that the only way it can safely be surveyed is with night goggles and hallucinatory humor. . . .documents the damage that war inflicts upon the American spirit. . . . This depiction of madness, this blur of comedy and tragedy is done with deft humor and convincing passion."
–The San Diego Union-Tribune
