This is an absolutely amazing book of poems by a man who was a poet before he went to serve in the war in Iraq. His unabashed poetic documentation of his experience is incredibly moving without being overloaded with opinion or judgment. It's all there in his presence and witness. Read full review

The poetry is moving, amazing; it's interesting to compare to poetry coming out of other wars with/against other cultures. Not a Metro book. Read full review
