"Kelley’s imaginative exploration into the mind and the mythologies of the American experience is brilliant and unforgettable.”
–Martin J. Sherwin,
Pulitzer Prize winning co-author of American Prometheus: The Triumph and Tragedy of J. Robert Oppenheimer and author of A World Destroyed
The Mirage is a love story dominated by past lives and present spirits.

“Robert Eaton Kelley’s novel, The Mirage, is written in such a lively and INVOLVING way that I couldn't help but read and read, and I think that's his great gift. The texture of the prose is marvelous. And Kelley has such a very fetching protagonist in the mad Patrick. I love the Ireland stuff too. Bravo on a lively tale, mythic and mad, fully realized.”
–Jay Parini, novelist, poet, literary critic, and biographer of Faulkner, Steinbeck and Frost [n.b. the film on the last days of Tolstoy, "The Last Station," was based on Parini’s novel of the same name; his novel about Herman Melville, The Passages of H.M., was published in 2010.]
"Robert Eaton Kelley's Shaman of the Green takes one on an extraordinary and thoroughly entertaining ride. His writings, which expertly explore the spirit and romance of the game, are in my humble opinion on a par with Michael Murphy and Steven Pressfield and the other great authors who have celebrated the game with their musings."
