Writer David Abrams, who served in the U.S. Army for twenty years, and was deployed to Iraq in 2005 as part of a public affairs team, reads from and discusses his debut novel Fobbit. Abrams’ book is a darkly ironic novel of the Iraq war that marks the acclaimed debut of a new voice in literary fiction. Based on his own experiences serving in Iraq and the diary he kept there, Fobbit takes us into the cha­otic world of Baghdad’s Forward Operating Base Triumph. Like Catch-22 and M*A*S*H, Fobbit fuses pathos with dark humor to cre­ate a brilliantly witty and profound work about the ugly and banal truth of life in the modern-day war zone.

($15.00) Grove Press ISBN #9780802120328. You can visit David Abrams’s official web site as well.
