Summary

"Chris Abani might be the most courageous writer working right now. There is no subject matter he finds daunting, no challenge he fears. Aside from that, he's stunningly prolific and writes like an angel. If you want to get at the molten heart of contemporary fiction, Abani is the starting point."-Dave Eggers, author of What is the What "Not since Jerzy Kosinski's The Painted Bird or Agota Kristof's Notebook trilogy has there been such a harrowing novel about what it's like to be a young person in a war. That Chris Abani is able to find humanity, mercy, and even, yes, forgiveness, amid such devastation is something of a miracle."-Rebecca Brown, author of The End of Youth In Song for Night, My Luck, a West African boy soldier who has lost his voice, leads us on a terrifying yet beautiful journey through the nightmare landscape of a brutal war in search of his lost platoon. Masterful, haunting, and written in a ghostly yet lyrical voice, this is a remarkable and empathetic story of courage, grace, morality, and triumph.
