"The All Quiet on the Western Front of America's Arab wars."Tom Wolfe

"The Yellow Birds is harrowing, inexplicably beautiful, and utterly, urgently necessary."Ann Patchett

"A remarkable first novel...The Yellow Birds is brilliantly observed and deeply affecting: at once a freshly imagined bildungsroman about a soldier's coming of age, a harrowing story about the friendship of two young men trying to stay alive on the battlefield in Iraq, and a philosophical parable about the loss of innocence and the uses of memory...Extraordinary."The New York Times

"This is a novel I've been waiting for. The Yellow Birds is born from experience and rendered with compassion and intelligence."Alice Sebold
