“A great little book that confronts the dark dragons that oppress us in these times of passion, with joyful, ironic energy.”
“George: a fascinating contemporary St. George, who with faith, audacity and courageous realism fights against the devious dragon that today threatens all of us.”
Archbishop Anoushavan Tanielian, Prelate of the Eastern Prelacy of the Armenian Apostolic Church of America.
“Siobhan Nash-Marshall reminds me of C. S. Lewis. She retells the classic story of Saint George and the Dragon, as Lewis retells the classical myth of Cupid and Psyche in Till We Have Faces, to show us ourselves in a new light. Like Lewis, she uses old stories to teach timeless truths in a new way. With the eye of the true philosopher, she shows that the distance between what is and what I want can be wider than the abyss that separates heaven from hell. This is why the knight, clad in the shining armour of truth, must wield his lance as a champion of what is against the dragon of what I want. This is storytelling at its most depth-delvingly profound.”
“Siobhan Nash-Marshall has written a charming and beautiful story about a man who discovers, as if by accident, what life is really all about. But there never are just “accidents” in life. There are moments when meaning and truth simply show up and overwhelm us. The result is true peace through the experience of love and the understanding that reality has a meaning that permits us to make sense of our lives.”
Fr. Gerald E. Murray, Pastor, Church of the Holy Family, New York, NY
“This little book captures what happens to people who live in unreality, they become sub-human and are more like animals. George is a seeker and one who remembers well. He is happiest when he is in the presence of beautiful music or the real love of a good family. These experiences are reality. He has to make choices.”
