Contemplating suicide after eight years at war, Levi sits down to write a note to his best friend Nick, explaining why he’s lost all hope.

After a childhood of blood pacts, punk shows, and competing infatuations with the wounded and troubled Eris, both went off to war in a fit of youth and misdirected patriotism.

But now Levi returns from Iraq both disgraced and lauded. A Silver Star for gallantry cannot alleviate the guilt he carries after his platoon’s deadliest mission.Levi may have saved Nick in Ad Dujayl, but when Levi returns home and implodes, Nick must play the savior, urging Levi to write. Levi begins typing as a way of bidding farewell, but what remains when he is done is not a suicide note- it’s a love song.

One bold narrative spanning two wars across three continents, it’s a novel that challenges our ideas about sacrifice and courage. It’s a novel in which the beginning is the story’s end, the end is the real beginning of Levi’s life, and the future is as mutable as rewrites.
