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."
"Powers's style and story are haunting." (starred review)
"[An] intense debut."
"[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."
"[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."
"[Powers] evoke sthe peculiar smell and feel of the war better than any journalist."
