This deeply affecting novel, written by an Iraq war veteran (and recent M.F.A. graduate in poetry), is the distressing story of two young soldiers trying to stay alive, and one of the soldiers returning home only to find that the war continues in his head.
The Yellow Birds is an insightful, personal, and moving novel. It helped me understand, on an emotional level, the traumatic experiences that face the young men and women who have gone to war.
If you are looking for a page-turning literary novel that you can read in one day, All Yours, a slim crime novel about a woman’s revenge on her cheating husband, is the book for you. The author, a native Argentinean, tells a gripping tale of domestic conflict and, at the same time, sheds light on Argentina’s class structure and the selfish behaviors of the entitled class. This author’s crime novels are all bestsellers in Latin America...and for good reason! All Yours is a great read.
