Letter Composed During a Lull in the Fighting

by Kevin Powers
£12.99   hardback  Hodder & Stoughton (2014)

Letter Composed During a Lull in the Fighting by Kevin Powers The acclaimed author of The Yellow Birds returns with an extraordinary debut poetry collection.
 
In this remarkable debut poetry collection, National Book Award finalist and Iraq war veteran Kevin Powers creates a startling, affecting portrait of a life shaped by war. Letter Composed During a Lull in the Fighting captures the many moments that comprise a soldier's life: driving down the Texas highway; waiting for the unknown in the dry Iraq heat; writing a love letter; listening to a mother recount her dreams.
 
Written with honesty and insight, these poems strive to make sense of war and its echoes through human experience.
