Format: Books
Summary "A stunning first novel--of patriotism, heroism, and profound humanism--that will immediately take its place on the shelf of classics about what it truly means to be at war. Captain Tom Barnes, leading British troops in the war zone. Two boys growing up there sharing a prized bicycle and flying kites before finding themselves estranged once foreign soldiers appear in their countryside. The man who trains one boy to fight the other's father as well as the infidel invaders. The family and friends who radiate out from these lives on all sides of this conflict. These are the people who populate this fiercely dramatic and moving novel. But we see them not as they see themselves, but as all the objects surrounding them do: shoes and boots, a helmet, a trove of dollars, a drone, that bike, weaponry, a bag of fertilizer, a medal, a beer glass, a snowflake, dog tags, an IED --forty-five different inanimate narrators whose unexpected voices tell the story of this heart-stopping journey. Anatomy of a Soldier gives us a way to clearly see and understand those who fight wars in ways we never have before"-- Provided by publisher.

This was his first glimpse of the carnage that would intensify in the years ahead. He chronicled the arrests of Mubarak and Morsi in Egypt, reported on the second Intifada from a divided Jerusalem, and covered the wars in Lebanon, Iraq, Libya, and Syria. He interviewed the Libyan rebels who toppled Gaddafi, and was kidnapped and held for five days in Syria. He went into Afghanistan to cover the Taliban and traced the rise of ISIS. He watched the romance and majestic history of the Middle East sink into sectarian hatred and social chaos."--From publisher description.

And then she receives a strange and cryptic letter from him, leading her to conclude that he wants her to join him in San Francisco.
