I don't know how I managed to get through the last decade without reading this book (which spent far too long on my bucket list of things to read). One of the best explorations of war, manhood, and memory, this is probably the best book of its particular genre I have read. Labeled A Fiction, it straddles novel and memoir in a startling fashion.
