“The Eagle Tree is a gorgeously written novel that features one of the most… memorable autistic protagonists in literature. The hero of the book is like a 14-year-old Walt Whitman with autism. Credible, authentic, powerful.”
“A pilgrim tale worthy of Chaucer… artfully delivered by a master storyteller.”
"A considerable achievement... powerful and elegant... morally complex and challenging. Wilderness of Mirrors is about the events of 9-11 and the War on Terror, but of course it's also about many other topics... the novel provides a scathing critique of the CIA and NSA."
“Brilliantly conceived and beautifully executed, Hayes’ novel is woven through with a deep knowledge of medieval history, all conveyed in mesmerizing prose. At the center of the novel is Mear, a brave and heartbreaking character whose story of triumph over adversity is a joy to read.”
