"Long road back from Bataan" - Mail
Tribune April 9, 2012
Craig Faulkner's book unveils many levels of challenges and insights
regarding the human predicament called "War." He grew up with
a father who survived the Bataan March and was a prisoner of war during
WWII. For me, a Hiroshima survivor, his work is a precious gift and an
eye opener, letting me see the agony of the tortured on the other side
and understand the multigenerational pain of war. His father's path to
self-knowledge and ability to find common ground leading to reconciliation
truly resonates with that of my own.

I thoroughly enjoyed Guts & Grace, but it is a tough journey
in reading. We get real glimpses into war and the lives of prisoners,
many of whom didn't survive. This is the story of one who did survive,
though barely, and tells of extraordinary experiences, some to near the
point of death. This is a book for those with guts enough to know and
dwell on the truth of what happened, down on the human level, and the
inhumanity borne by so many. It tells their story for anyone willing
to hear it. Once you start in on it, it's hard to put down.
