National Book Award Winner
|We're honored to welcome 2014 National Book Award-winning author Phil Klay to BookPeople to read from his collection of stories, Redeployment. Klay's stories take readers to the frontlines of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, asking us to understand what happened there, and what happened to the soldiers who returned. Interwoven with themes of brutality and faith, guilt and fear, helplessness and survival, the characters in these stories struggle to make meaning out of chaos.|
