“Permanent Party is – what? A Vietnam-era W.A.C.’s Catch-22? A roman-à-clef? A murder mystery? A poetic memoir? Barr’s ear for dialogue is flawless, her... More > descriptions of human physiognomy hilarious. The dramatic rhythm is sporadic and punctuated, deliberately defying the breathless crescendi of fiction with the unresolved panics and careless lulls of real life in a gigantic bureaucracy. Small, throwaway bits of telling detail -- peeling paint chips, a dog’s sneeze on being patted, the smell of chicken frying -- give the entire book a sensuous texture. The characters in this woman’s Army are so steeped in weirdness they wouldn’t have been out of place in my college dorm (and we were the campus hippies).” -- E.J. Barnes, Tales Of The Ling Master< Less
