A Dearth of Eagles is about a Bulgarian emigre in NYC in 1988, a writer, who simultaneously battles the Bulgarian secret police to smuggle dissidents to freedom from behind the Iron Curtain but, above all, battles the modernist literati to publish serious hero stories in a literary culture rejecting heroism for anti-heroism.

Praise for A Dearth of Eagles

“This is an exhilarating, love-infused story of mystery and adventure. The story builds an edge-of-the-seat momentum as the protagonists fight for both heroism in American literature and freedom behind the Iron Curtain. Beware: Andrew Bernstein’s story may embolden the hero in you. This is destined to become a classic, read by students young and old worldwide.” — Ellen Kenner, Ph.D.  Co-Author, The Selfish Path to Romance: How to Love With Passion and Reason

“A Dearth of Eagles presents the grandest view of an action-packed hero’s life with a philosophic punch. As the narrative drama accelerates the reader forward, the underlying conflict of values reveals itself as the true driving force. The intellectual spy thriller has a new voice in Andrew Bernstein.” — Eric Daniels, Ph.D.  Head of School, LePort School

“From the heights of the sunlit skyscrapers of New York City to the lows of the dusty streets of Communist Bulgaria, Andrew Bernstein’s A Dearth of Eagles shows readers why a heroic view of human nature lead men and women trapped behind the Iron Curtain to fight for freedom, and why a bespotted and ulcerous view of human nature lead the intelligentsia of the West to defend human enslavement.” — Robert White, Ph.D. Dean of Faculty and Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the American University in Bulgaria

“This fun and rare read dramatizes the ingenuity, tenacity, and moral courage of heroic freedom fighters in Eastern Europe in the closing years of the Cold War. The action scenes bring the heat. The dialogue both sparkles and inspires. Readers will delight also in solving the mystery of how any of this relates to a cerebral seminar at an American university.” — Richard M. Salsman, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Dept. of Political Science, Duke University

“Andrew Bernstein’s tense political page-turner tells the fascinating story of  heroic freedom fighters in Bulgaria and New York during the last days of Communist rule in 1988 and 1989. This superbly suspenseful novel captures a unique period in political history. It chronicles the intense battles of a young writer who struggles to help Bulgarian dissidents escape to America. Not only does this writer engage in brutal encounters with the Bulgarian secret police, he concurrently takes on the literary establishment in a dauntless effort to get his serious hero stories published in a modernist literary world  that favors anti-heroism over heroism.” — Edward Younkins, Ph.D. Professor of Accountancy and Director, Institute for the Study of Capitalism and Morality, Wheeling Jesuit University

“A story about a heroic writer, writing a story within the story about his real life and death exploits, that critics reject as unreal. It is a story about heroes who scale actual mountains to achieve political freedom in the face of an entrenched oppressive regime and about metaphorical mountains scaled to achieve professional success in the face of an entrenched oppressive literary culture.” — Steven Lansman, M.D., Ph.D., Director, Cardiothoracic Surgery, Westchester Medical Center

“Bernstein has penned an inspiring tale. An exploration of physical, moral, and intellectual courage, A Dearth of Eagles propels us through the heroic narrative of Kalin, Bulgarian freedom-fighter-turned-author.  He seeks to prove that whether tyrannized by armed thugs or smugly cynical convention, the power of living and loving on principle enables the human spirit to break free of such chains.” — Carrie-Ann Biondi, Ph.D. Associate Professor of Philosophy, Marymount Manhattan College
