This offer is for "Green on Blue" together with "Dark at the Crossing," "Waiting for Eden" and "Places and Names" -- all have been SIGNED by Elliot Ackerman on their respective title pages (he has also crossed-out his printed name as well on each)! 1) "Green on Blue" (2015 - Scribner) - a gripping, morally complex debut novel about boys caught in an elliptical war, and the sacrifices we make for love. Writing from the Afghan perspective, Elliott Ackerman has broken new ground in the literature of our most recent wars, accomplishing an astounding feat of empathy and imagination. 2) "Dark at the Crossing" (2017 - Knopf) -- A Finalist for the 2017 National Book Award for Fiction. A timely new novel of stunning humanity and tension: a love story set on the Turkish border with Syria. Elliot Ackerman, author of the critically acclaimed novel "Green on Blue," is based out of Istanbul, where he has covered the Syrian Civil War since 2013. Told with compassion and a deft hand, "Dark at the Crossing" is an exploration of loss, of second chances and of why we choose to believe - a trenchantly observed novel of raw urgency and power. 3) "Waiting for Eden" (2018 - Knopf) -- A breathtakingly spare and shattering novel that traces the intersection of three star=crossed lives. A piercingly insightful, deeply felt meditation on loyalty and betrayal, love and fear. 4) "Places and Names" (2019 - Penguin Press) -- At once an intensely personal story about the terrible lure of combat and a brilliant meditation on the deeper meaning of the past two decades of strife for America, the region, and the world, "Places and Names" bids fair to take its place among our greatest books about modern war. Elliot Ackerman is both a former White House Fellow and Marine and served five tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan, where he received the Silver Star, the Bronze Star for Valor, and the Purple Heart.
