From the Publisher:
A memoir by a bomb-disposal veteran of the Iraq War traces his three tours of duty in the Middle East and his team's daily life-threatening efforts to stop roadside bombers, sharing additional coverage of the challenges he faced while reacclimating to civilian life. (biography & autobiography). Simultaneous.
"The intercutting of...two different narratives effectively conveys how a disturbing mental condition can erupt in the aftermath of nightmarish war horrors." (starred review) 03/19/2012 "The book's disordered narration, which will feel familiar to readers of contemporary war literature, complements the author's experience of postwar dislocation....[T]the enduring treachery of memory--the persistence of 'driven insight and unwanted knowledge'--remains the real, unfinished story of THE LONG WALK. It takes as much courage for Castner to confront that memory as it does to face an active fuse." - Elizabeth D. Samet 08/19/2012
