William Kowalski is the kind of storyteller you don’t see quite enough these days. The yarn spinner with a generous soul. The Hundred Hearts is a moving, humane adventure about the price of personal connections and the costs of sacrifice. I tore through this bad boy in two short nights.(Victor LaValle, author of The Devil in Silver)
Kowalski writes in a style so natural that the reader is only aware of the story...highly recommended.(Library Journal)
The Hundred Hearts is writing as cinematic brilliance. Kowalski makes you look inside yourself at things you might not want to admit you've seen. A wake-up call sent from deep inside your own skin, it reminds about things you'd rather pretend weren't there.(Russell Wangersky, author of Whirl Away)
A stunning and tragic meditation on the terrible burden soldiers carry home from the wars they can never really leave. A rich and brilliantly written story with welcome rays of humour to cut the darkness. Timely yet timeless.(Terry Fallis, author of The Best Laid Plans)
Exuberant...Kowalski is a talented stylist.(New York Times Book Review)
With a keen eye for the tellingly hilarious detail, near pitch-perfect dialogue, and deft use of Jeremy's ironic voice, Kowalski leads one far deeper into America's heart of darkness than one might otherwise be willing to go. (Kerry on Can Lit)
...a deeply entertaining book that manages to leave a strong impression. (Quill & Quire)
Intricately plotted, this moving story about the hearts of warriors long broken is timely, beautifully written and memorable. (The Sun Times)
How many books do you read at once? I usually have two going at the same time. There’s the book you rip through, that doesn’t take very long, and then the book you spend an hour with every night, slowly. Sometimes you just want to make it last longer, to honour the care and the commitment of the author; sometimes it’s because the story is so devastating you have to take your time; sometimes it’s because you’re trying to convince yourself that by the time you’re done, the world might not be as cruel as the one that’s been written; and sometimes the book is like life, and it takes time to process. William Kowalski’s The Hundred Hearts is all of the above. Also, it looks like a Burberry shirt, only much cheaper and will keep a lot longer. (Laineygossip.com)
