“A BRIEF HISTORY OF HOWARD presents an opportunity to discover a classic: gifted writing, intellectual stimulation, and just enough 'Hollywood' suspense to prevent you from guessing what happens next. Pay attention; you can’t imagine where you’re going to end up on this journey!”
Jennifer Elin Cole, Cookie Bear Press
“A BRIEF HISTORY OF HOWARD is brilliant, astonishing, soulful—it reads like a jazz improvisation would play: surprising, moving, virtuosic and ultimately satisfying.
“It's the classic story of the grand fight between good and evil, with a solution provided by Stephen Hawking via Fritjof Capra and Isaac Singer. (Now, how is that for a hybrid?)
“It is an astonishing work of innovative fiction”
Deborah Schneider, Gelfman Schneider Literary Agents, NYC
"Whether you see it 'your way' or the author's, A BRIEF HISTORY OF HOWARD is more than an entertaining, thought-provoking, and engrossing tale (much more...as a sequel is underway). Levin truly captures the 'Spirit of St. Louis' in place and time. As I was carried along by the story, reading ceased and listening took over, leaving me with the impression I had just participated in a very satisfying conversation."
