Novels about the current Iraq War have yet to be published in abundance. While non-fiction almost immediately tackles the topic of current wars, it seems to take much longer for it to permeate literature. But author David Zimmerman has decided to tackle the Iraq War in his debut novel, The Sandbox. The starred review in Publisher’s Weekly had this to say, “Zimmerman’s remarkable debut succeeds both as a realistic portrayal of the current Iraq War from the American perspective and as an energetic thriller.” Marine veteran and author of Bagdad Express: A Gulf War Memoir also gave it a good review in The New York Times.
