Dear Librarians,

My former sister-in-law deployed to Iraq during the Surge. When she returned stateside she severed all communication. In that absence, I imagined what might've happened to her. THE STANDARD GRAND is the result.

Dennis Lehane thinks it's "bracingly original." Booklist, in a starred review, calls it "an important and deeply human contribution to the national conversation." Kirkus says it's a "seamless blend of road-trip saga, love story, and critique of military contractors." Library Journal named it the "spiritual heir to Robert Stone's Vietnam-era classic Dog Soldiers," and booksellers say, simply, it's "a book I've been awaiting."
