Here, Bullet by Brian Turner

Book Description

Adding his voice to the current debate about the US occupation of Iraq, in poems written in the tradition of such poets as Wilfred Owen, Yusef Komunyakaa ("Dien Cai Dau"), Bruce Weigl ("Song of Napalm") and Alice James' own Doug Anderson ("The Moon Reflected Fire"), Iraqi war veteran Brian Turner writes power-fully affecting poetry of witness, exceptional for its beauty, honesty, and skill. Based on Turner's yearlong tour in Iraq as an infantry team leader, the poems offer gracefully rendered, unflinching description but, remarkably, leave the reader to draw conclusions or moral lessons. "Here, Bullet" is a must-read for anyone who cares about the war, regardless of political affiliation.
