Praise for the original edition:
"A haunting chorus of voices, a moving deeply disturbing evocation of an era." —San Francisco Chronicle
"Myra MacPherson's book belongs with the best of the works on Vietnam, and there has been no better body of war literature that I know of." —Joseph Heller
"A brilliant and necessary book... this stunning depiction of Vietnam's bitter fruit is calculated to agitate even the most complacent American." —Philadelphia Inquirer
"There have been many books on the Vietnam War, but few have captured its second life as memory better than Long Time Passing." —Washington Post Book World
"A most perceptive and fascinating account of the continuing impact of the Vietnam experience.... As this important book makes clear, we will be paying the costs for Vietnam for long years to come. Myra MacPherson not only lived through the Vietnam years, she writes with the insight of one still deeply caught up in the issues of that tragedy." —George McGovern
"Enthralling reading... full of deep and strong emotions." —New York Times
