…is now up to listen to over at Charles’ site. If you haven’t had the chance to listen to the podcast you really should go check it out. Here is a little blurb on it from Charles’ site and a couple of reviews:
Nineteen year-old Chet Brown arrived home from the Gulf War in the spring of 1991 and found that, for him, the war was only beginning. Betrayed by his friends and lover, ignored by his family, Brown travels across the country in search of meaning behind the horrors of his war.
“Bleak and disturbing… dead-on-target …This first novel is a work of pure psychological conflict.” – Pulitzer Prize winning reporter John Hanchette, Reno Gazette-Journal
“Brutally honest, direct, and meaningful, Prayer At Rumayla is a compelling novel of coming to terms not only with dangers and traumas of the battlefront, but with its aftermath upon the lives of the surviving combatants.” – Midwest Book Review
Luckily I have a copy (a couple actually) but it has been at least a couple of years since I read it, so listening to the podcast itself is like reading it again.
