really liked it

A short, lyrical novel that packs a powerful punch. Relates the experiences of an Iraq deployment on one young grunt and the psychic, social and physical effects of war on those often ill-prepared to deal with the after effects. I think Kevin Powers has great promise as a writer, and I look forward to his future work.
