Description - Rescue Missions by Frederick Busch

Some of the stories in this "brilliant" (Library Journal, starred review) collection feature the war in Iraq, and others feature domestic wars; in every case, a character seeks to comfort or to save someone. Physical love, familial love, the need to give comfort-and the need for comfort-are themes skillfully rendered by this "master of the genre" (Booklist, starred review), whose achievements earned the American Academy of Arts and Letters Award of Merit for lifetime achievement in short fiction.
