«THE EXILE is a psychological mind bender. Kotzwinkle allows the novel to build slowly until, in the last hundred pages, the book becomes glued to the reader's hands as the devastating climactic scenes pile one on another. This reviewer suffered nightmares after reading the final pages, nightmares that were testimony to Kotzwinkle's powerful writing.»
--W. P. Kinsella, Washington Post Book World
Hollywood film star David Caspian finds himself falling through a crack in time--into the back alleys of Hitler's Germany. The problem is--he's not David Caspian any longer and the Gestapo is after him.
«When Kotzwinkle is the author, readers can be sure only that the book in question will be different from everything else. His work continues to be distinguished by its originality, wit and daring. As in other Kotzwinkle novels, black magic is involved--and the reader too falls under a strange spell.»
