Elliot Ackerman, WAITING FOR EDEN

It's about the effects of the military on families and the inner struggles on the path to loyalty. Elliot is a brilliant writer whose prose makes me want to underline every sentence. His novel,Dark at the Crossing, was a finalist for the National Book Award. He also wroteGreen on Blue andPlaces and Names: On War, Revolution, and Returning. A former Marine who served five tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan where he received the Silver Star, the Bronze Star for Valor, and the Purple Heart, Elliot is simply no joke.
