This short novel provides a parallel to the abortive Athenian invasion of Syracuse in Sicily and the American intervention in Vietnam. It has current applications to the posture of the United States in the post-Cold War world Few recent novelists have managed to manipulate successfully as complex a story ... or to suggest so convincingly changes within a wide range of persons. This terse work can be read in a short time, but it gives one things to think about for long time -- like the assertion that 'a democracy must walk carefully and not abandon itself to genius.' Kansas City Star. The Quarries of Sicily is "a novel of ideas -- literate, educated in the classical sense, honestly stated, and for the most part thoroughly pursued..... An eminently satisfying novel." Publisher's Weekly.

Doulis "writes with passion and maturity, and his characters are finely done, humanly flawed, and understandable." Library Journal.

The Quarries of Sicily "is "an excellent novel that tells an interesting story of interesting people, (and) that comments on several aspects of contemporary life, including man's inability to face the unknown world." Best Sellers.
