Product Details


“Gorgeously constructed . . . Unique . . . A deeply moving portrayal of how grief can begin even while our loved ones still cling to life . . . A wonderful novel.”Booklist (starred)

“With Waiting for Eden, Elliot Ackerman tells a story that cuts straight to the heart of the human condition. His sentences are elegant in their concision and directness, and they reveal as much about grief, love, and our duties to each other as any book I can recall reading. It’s a bold, ambitious project even in its most quiet moments, for it asks no less than where we draw the line around the inherent value of human life. This is a devastatingly sad and compassionate piece of work. Extraordinary.” —Kevin Powers, author of The Yellow Birds and A Shout in the Ruins

“Elliot Ackerman continues to amaze. . . Waiting for Eden is a tight, intense story of loyalty, guilt and suffering that belies its brevity. Ackerman has crafted another prismatic window into the long-lasting agony of war.”Shelf Awareness

“Heartbreaking . . . A deeply touching exploration of resentment, longing, and loss.”
Publishers Weekly (starred)

“An affecting, spare, and unusual novel. ”Kirkus Reviews (starred)
