Praise

"Powers writes with a rawness that brings the sights and smells as well as the trauma and decay of war home to the reader." 07/15/2012

"Powers's style and story are haunting." (starred review) 07/30/2012

"[An] intense debut." - Keith Staskiewicz 09/07/2012

"[B]rilliantly observed and deeply affecting: at once a freshly imagined story about a soldier's coming of age, a harrowing tale about the friendship of two young men trying to stay alive on the battlefield in Iraq, and a philosophical parable about the loss of innocence and the uses of memory." - Michiko Kakutani 09/06/2012

"[A] first novel as compact and powerful as a footlocker full of ammo.....Kevin Powers has something to say, something deeply moving about the frailty of man and the brutality of war, and we should all lean closer and listen." - Benjamin Percy 10/07/2012

"[Powers] evoke sthe peculiar smell and feel of the war better than any journalist." 11/19/2012
