  • Publisher's description. Hilarious and heartbreaking, a coming-of-age tale for modern America. Mickey and Halifax are best friends: held together by a sense of humour, shared memories, world-class parties, but pushed apart by circumstance, growing up, the Iraq War and girls. After high school, thrust into new lives worlds apart, they must decide what friendship and happiness really mean.

  • This book has sweep and heart and humor. It captures coming of age during foreign wars and domestic malaise, and it does so with electrifying insight

    Mary Karr, author of The Liars' Club, Cherry, and Lit
  • As bizarre, hilarious and devastating as the past decade . . . Simultaneously a coming-of-age story, a war story, and a story of the disaffected millennial generation for whom the war hardly happened at all

    Phil Klay, author of Redeployment
  • Smart and entertaining . . . [a] likable, highly readable, double-bylined coming-of-age first novel
