Book Recommendation- Cherry


"Cherry" by Nico Walker.

Jesus' son meets Reservoir Dogs in a breakneck- paced debut novel about love, war, bank robberies and heroin. Nico Walker's debut is a grim portrait of a soldier's experience of the Iraq war and of the drug addiction that haunts his homecoming. 

“A miracle of literary serendipity. . . . [Walker’s] language, relentlessly profane but never angry, simmers at the level of morose disappointment, something like Holden Caulfield Goes to War.” —The Washington Post

AND the cover is super cool.
