NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK 2016
Readers will claim this masterpiece of a novel is a big book, and in terms of being Sabina Murray's magnum opus, it certainly is. But Valiant Gentlemen was far too short for my passions, and when I consumed the last page I felt bereft for days, silently begging the author for more. On this side of the Atlantic, Murray is our Hilary Mantel.
--Bob Shacochis, author of The Woman Who Lost Her Soul.
"Sabina Murray's VALIANT GENTLEMEN is an adventure set amid the secret history of the modern world--the personal revolutions inside the revolutionary man Roger Casement was, a man who took part in or bore witness to so much of the history we live with now, and brought to vivid, thrilling life. This novel is made out of history but is every bit a modern marvel."
Alexander Chee, author of The Queen of the Night
