In High Treason, the literary expression of what Hugo Chávez did in Venezuela has pushed the boundaries of epic poetry and has manifested itself as fiction. – BBC Mundo
This is not only fine writing by two sophisticated writers, but this is also a history lesson in the form of a novel. And even more important, the authors have created a small band of friends who become our friends, too. This is an exceptional work that deserves a very wide audience. – Grady Harp
