Présentation de l'éditeur :

These stories aren't pretty and they aren't for the faint of heart. They are realistic, haunting and shocking. And they are all unforgettable. Television reports, movies, newspapers and blogs about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have offered images of the fighting there. But this collection offers voices--powerful voices, telling the kind of truth that only fiction can offer.
What makes the collection so remarkable is that all of these stories are written by those who were there, or waited for them at home. The anthology, which features a Foreword by National Book Award winner Colum McCann, includes the best voices of the our wars' generation: Brian Turner, whose poem "Hurt Locker" was the movie's inspiration; Colby Buzzell, whose book "My War" resonates with countless veterans; Siobhan Fallon, whose book "You Know When the Men Are Gone" echoes the joy and pain of the spouses left behind; Matt Gallagher, whose book "Kaboom" captures the hilarity and horror of the modern military experience; and nine others.

Revue de presse :

I've been waiting for this book for a decade. I laughed, shouted and cried while reading this kaleidoscopic collection. So many facets of warand the people who do our fighting are covered here. Fire and Forget is a literary history of this lates period of American wars. It's a profound and telling work of art --Anthony Swofford, bestselling author of Jarhead

Searing stories from the war zones of Afghanistan, Iraq and the USA by warrior writers. Fire and Forget is about not forgetting. It is a necessary collection, necessary ot write, necessary to read --E.L. Doctorow
