'Youngblood Hawke is the most ambitious work to date by a writer who commands a large international audience. Herman Wouk's first novel since 1955, it is a powerful and exciting story about a gifted young writer who rockets to success and piles up and loses fortunes in a wild and dazzling career. This large-scale narrative, stretching over seven years and involving many counter-plots and scores of brilliantly-drawn characters, swirls through Kentucky Hollywood, New York, Europe and Washington, and builds up to a thundering climax as two women struggle for the love and life of Youngblood Hawke.'
