Waiting for Eden (Ackerman) - Book Reviews

Book Reviews
(Starred review) This is a deeply touching exploration of resentment, longing, and loss among those who volunteer to fight and the loved ones left behind.
Publishers Weekly


(Starred review) With sparse prose and a deft pen, Ackerman writes a profound meditation on the liminal space between our past, present, and future. —Joshua Finnell, Colgate Univ., Hamilton, NY
Library Journal

(Starred review) Gorgeously constructed.… Unique.… A deeply moving portrayal of how grief can begin even while our loved ones still cling to life.… A wonderful novel.
Booklist


(Starred review) Wounded terribly in Iraq three years ago, a soldier awaits his death in a burn center in San Antonio, and we learn of his fate through a surprising, unconventional, and risky narrative strategy.… An affecting, spare, and unusual novel.
