Between War and Here

by Carolyn A. Surrick

Book Image Not Available
Overview
"On a hundred Fridays, Carolyn Surrick brought the gift of music to wounded combat vets and their families. In these sharply observed poems, she gives us glimpses into the lives of The Few - that small segment of America that fights our wars and comes home forever altered by the experience." Neal Conan, host of National Public Radio's Talk of the Nation
Description
"On a hundred Fridays, Carolyn Surrick brought the gift of music to wounded combat vets and their families. The intimacies of melody and rhythm allowed her rare access to worlds where most civilians remain strangers. Worlds of pain and loss, yes, but worlds of shared sacrifice and loyalty and resilience and joy, too. In these sharply observed poems, she gives us glimpses into the lives of The Few - that small segment of America that fights our wars and comes home forever altered by the experience." Neal Conan, host of National Public Radio's Talk of the Nation
