Redeployment by Phil Klay

Penguin Press, 304 pages, $26.95 (released 3/2014)

“Redeployment” won the National Book Award for fiction for 2014. It is a stunning collection of twelve stories told by narrators with very different viewpoints of the war in Iraq. Klay himself is a veteran Marine. He was in the military’s public affairs office in Iraq, but toured and saw enough of “real fighting” and talked to enough other military people that his stories ring with deeply felt emotion and truth.

However, this is not a mystery.

Unless war is a mystery to you.
