Afghanistan, Iraq, and the USA by warrior
writers, Fire and Forget is about not
forgetting. It is a necessary collection,
necessary to write, necessary to read."
The stories aren't pretty and they aren't for the faint of heart. They are gritty, haunting, shocking—and unforgettable. Television reports, movies, newspapers, and blogs about the recent wars have offered snapshots of the fighting there. But this anthology brings us a chorus of powerful storytellers—some of the first bards from our recent wars, emerging voices and new talents—telling the kind of panoramic truth that only fiction can offer.
What makes these stories even more remarkable is that all of them are written by men and women whose lives were directly engaged in the wars—soldiers, Marines, and an army spouse. Featuring a forward by National Book Award-winner Colum McCann, this anthology spans every era of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, from Baghdad to Brooklyn, from Kabul to Fort Hood.
