"Levinger's e-book is a compelling university within which love and reminiscence remove darkness from attention-grabbing fragments of yank social heritage. It tells of twenty-year-old Sam Levinger, who died in 1937 battling Franco's Nazi-backed rebels in Spain . . . Sam, the proficient, writerly boy who lives back now in Levinger's e-book via his letters home-their crystalline prose, shot via with wry humour, tricks too on the sparse depth of a soldier's experience."
