Product Details

Praise

"Evocative, heartbreaking and haunting … [Israel’s] "Red Badge of Courage." Because Leshem, like Stephen Crane, never saw combat, this is not a work of autobiography or observations but one of empathy and reconstruction—and all the stronger for that because the author has deployed both qualities without judgment. Beaufort is that rare thing, a novel of deep moral concern in which sympathetically drawn and beautifully realized characters are allowed to speak for themselves."—Los Angeles Times

“Thirteen young soldiers spring to life with voices at once self-critical and brash, tender and darkly flippant…. Though firsthand accounts and combat memoirs line the shelves of bookstores, Leshem’s fiction rivals them in the completeness of his cosmos of war.”—San Francisco Chronicle

“Ron Leshem has succeeded in creating an entire world, simply through language.”—David Grossman, author of The Yellow Wind

“A gripping, viscerally powerful tale…. An alternately grim and blackly comic war/coming-of-age novel.”—Kirkus Reviews

“An important novel…. This is a picture of war from a soldier’s point of view. Its language is crude, the body count rises, and yet the tenderness of the bonds among the men is extraordinary.”—Library Journal, starred review

Beaufort is that rare thing, a novel of deep moral concern in which sympathetically drawn and beautifully realized characters are allowed to speak for themselves.” —Chicago Tribune

“A book we couldn’t put down.” —Penthouse
