A NovelBook - 2012
At a stark outpost in the Kandahar mountain range, a team of American soldiers watches a young Afghan woman approach. She has come to beg for the return of her brother's body. The camp's tense, claustrophobic atmosphere comes to a boil as the men argue about what to do next. This significant, eloquent novel re-creates the chaos, intensity and immediacy of war, and conveys the inevitable repercussions felt by the soldiers and their families - especially one sister. From the author of "The Storyteller of Marrakesh."
