Product description

Review

''Quick delivers an exceptional novel; its themes of war and memory as well as its unforgettable characters, especially the ornery David, fast pace, and insightful dialog will connect with readers.'' (Library Journal (starred review))

''A compact powerhouse of a novel. . . . it's subversive, unexpected, and utterly compelling.'' (Booklist (starred review))

''Dark, funny, and surprisingly tender.'' --(Publishers Weekly)

''The author of The Silver Linings Playbook delivers another engaging and screen-ready dramedy about an irascible misfit on a mission for closure.'' --(Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

''Surprising.... At the core of the novel is the voice of David Granger, a combination of Archie Bunker and Marlow of Conrad's Heart of Darkness.... A valuable addition to fiction about the tangled aftereffects of Vietnam on soldiers in the field.'' --(Kirkus)
