About Paul Hawkins

American author. I am happy to be a child of the space age and I still set my sights on great things. I put humor in everything I write because that is my disposition. If I chronicle the 20th century it is only because I have not given up on the 21st.

Review by: Martin Sowery on Jan. 26, 2014 :
If we say that Atticus Finch meets Gatsby in a tale told by L. Frank Baum, it's not to decry the originality of this book, but only to give the reader some idea of what they are in for. There's a sly beguiling slant to the highly entertaining narrative - when you look back, you find you've ended in a different place to where the story seemed to be headed. Deserves a wider audience and makes this reader pleased to discover there are a number of other titles by Mr Hawkins available.

Review by: Gabriella Horvath on Aug. 18, 2013 :
This is an exceptional novel, full of humor and pathos as well as great characters and a well-constructed plot--some passages were so good that I went back and read them aloud. I believe it stands up to any number of works on the literary fiction best-sellers list. Highly recommended.

Review by: Tony Bishop on Nov. 23, 2011 :
A love letter to the twentieth century. While other are splashing in puddles of their own self-pity, Hawkins has written a big story for a big era, a requiem for the lost potential of the American Century.
