"In Glossy Black Cockatoos Dan Guenther once again takes us to exotic places in the tradition of Joseph Conrad with a story of personal redemption that is at once dark, comic, powerful, and evocative." — Bob Fischer, Colonel USMC (Ret.), former advisor to the Vietnamese Marine Corps, Lecturer on Strategy and Tactics of the Insurgent, Naval War College.

"With its echos of The Sun Also Rises, Dan Guenther's Glossy Black Cockatoos captures the strange mix of relief and despair experienced by two Yank expatriates living in Sydney, Australia following the end of the Vietnam War, and how their lives were forever changed by a series of events that take them back to Southeast Asia." — Ed Gorman, author of The Day the Music Died

"Glossy Black Cockatoos is a vivid, expressionistic novel of international intrigue driven by emotional tension and powerful imagery, one with unforgettable, iconic characters." — Dow Mossman, author of The Stones of Summer
