Vicki Hendricks, QUIXOTE QUARTERLY, 1994 (DEFROSTING HOWARD) Reviews on Al Gowan's last novel ZAMORA'S TATTOO "Marks the debut of a new American novelist of insight, intelligence, style and sensitivity. Al Gowan is a writer with something to say that's fresh and provocative and he says it in a voice that is utterly, uniquely his own."
-Gerald Gross, EDITORS ON EDITING "A dangerous and startling novel full of wit and grace. Al Gowan is a writer who takes delight in revealing the struggles of his people"
