The Post-War Dream is the eighth book by American author Mitch Cullin and was published by Random House in March 2008.[1]

Initial reviews of the novel were mixed, with Kirkus Reviews calling it "a misstep in Cullin's unpredictable, adventurous and, alas, frustratingly uneven oeuvre,"[2] and Publishers Weekly dismissing the work as "sterile."[3] But subsequent pre-publication reviews from Booklist,[4] Library Journal,[5] and The Denver Post were positive.[6]

In the March 16 edition of the Los Angeles Times Book Review[7] and, simultaneously published, the Chicago Tribune,[8] critic Donna Seaman praised the book, stating: "In this exacting, suspenseful, elegiac yet life-embracing novel, Cullin reminds us that no boundaries separate the personal and communal, the past and present, the false and true."
