One lucky reader will win a copy of all three. Afghan Post and Friday Was the Bomb are softcovers and Seriously Not All Right is a hardcover (and signed by the author). Here's a little more about the books...
Jarhead) had to say about it: "Afghan Post is a deeply felt and poetically resonant epistolary memoir. I love the form and the way that Bonenberger is able to inhabit the multiple and fractured selves that emerge from the experience of combat. This is a book that will bring the madness and beauty of combat right down into your shaking hands."
