An unforgettable debut novel that marks the arrival of a talented new writer, Cherry is a raw, unsparing, and incredibly timely book about the horrors of war and the harrowing effects of addiction.
In this “miracle of literary serendipity” (The Washington Post), after finding himself deep in the thrall of heroin addiction, the soldier arrives at what seems like the only logical solution: robbing banks.
Written by a singularly talented, wildly imaginative debut novelist, Cherry is a bracingly funny and unexpectedly tender work of fiction straight from the dark heart of America.
