Notes

Description
"At a stark outpost in the Kandahar mountain range, a team of American soldiers watches a young Afghan woman approach. She has come to beg for the return of her brother's body. The camp's tense, claustrophobic atmosphere comes to a boil as the men argue about what to do next. Taking its cues from the Antigone myth, this significant, eloquent novel recreates the chaos, intensity, and immediacy of war, and conveys the inevitable repercussions felt by the soldiers, their families, and by one sister"--,Provided by publisher.
