About the Author

Whitney Terrell is the New Letters writer-in-residence at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. He is a graduate of Princeton University and has an MFA from the Iowa Writers' Workshop. His first novel, The Huntsman, was a New York Times Notable Book. His nonfiction has appeared in the New York Times, Details, Harper's, the New York Observer, the Kansas City Star, and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. He was an embedded reporter in Iraq during 2006 and 2010 and covered the war for the Washington Post Magazine, Slate, and NPR. He was born and raised in Kansas City.

Ever since his first play at thirteen (his mother still has the bellhop costume), Jeffrey Kafer has been an avid performer on the stage and in voice-overs. He has narrated over one hundred books spanning all genres and won the 2008 Voicey Award for Best New Voice. He currently lives in Seattle with his family.


A wild Humvee ride of a novel.

-- "Joyce Carol Oates, New York Times bestselling author"

Terrell is experimenting with the slow revelation of character in the opposite direction of a normal narrative arc...We are left to wonder about our own lies, when they became acceptable to us, whom we trust, and how we've become who we are.

-- "New York Times Book Review"

This is brilliant, bold, heartbreaking storytelling for material that demands nothing less.

-- "Adam Johnson, Pulitzer Prize-winning author"

A terrific exploration of courage, leadership, and loss...that feels both specific to the Iraq conflict and also unnervingly timeless.

-- "Gillian Flynn, #1 New York Times bestselling author"

Joins the ranks of great war novels that explain, too late, why 'victory is an illusion of philosophers and fools.'

-- "Jayne Anne Phillips, New York Times bestselling author"

A stirring performance grounded in the hard realities of combat...This novel should be read by all.

-- "Anthony Swofford, New York Times bestselling author"

Terrell shows us how soldiers think and address one another with a stinging combination of military argot and pop culture references.

-- "Publishers Weekly (starred review)"

Focuses not so much on military action and battle scenes as on the interactions of a group of unheroic individuals thrown into an extreme situation...It is exactly these confrontations among and within individuals that give the story its power and appeal.

-- "Library Journal"

One might have expected a female narrator for this book, but, not to worry, narrator Jeffrey Kafer delivers Emma's voice well. He also does a decent job of dramatizing her personality...His pacing and timing are good, and the complex emotional landscapes he paints are often heartrending.
