Prisoners of War (2004)
"Yarbrough writes with quiet compassion ... [about] what it means to be an American, and all the unexpected—and often unwarranted—sacrifices that identity might entail."
— New York Times Book Review
"The highest kind of art, full of subtlety and sensitivity."
— Dallas Morning News
"Vivid and dramatic ... Prisoners of War is smart and entertaining."
— San Francisco Chronicle
"With subtlety, compassion and detachment Yarbrough teases out the notion that the line separating those who can be saved from those who cannot is very fine and too easily crossed."
— Memphis Commercial Appeal
"What a stunning, cathartic, body blow of a novel. If this one doesn't put Yarbrough on the map, we ought to change maps."
— Tom Franklin
