You Know When the Men Are Gone

You Know When the Men Are Gone

Description

"Gripping, straight-up, no-nonsense stories about American soldiers and their families. . . simple, tough, and true."--The New York Times "Prose that's brave and honest."--People "Terrific. . . and terrifically illuminating."--The Washington Post

An award-winning story collection from the author of The Confusion of Languages. Through fiction of dazzling skill and astonishing emotional force, Siobhan Fallon welcomes readers into the American army base at Fort Hood, Texas, where U.S. soldiers prepare to fight, and where their families are left to cope after the men are gone. They'll meet a wife who discovers unsettling secrets when she hacks into her husband's email, and a teenager who disappears as her mother fights cancer. There is the foreign born wife who has tongues wagging over her late hours, and the military intelligence officer who plans a covert mission against his own home. Powerful, singular, and unforgettable, these stories will resonate deeply with readers and mark the debut of a talent of tremendous note.
