These Heroic, Happy Dead review

This book definitely gives you a new point of view on life after reading it. The title,These Heroic, Happy Dead, comes from a poem by e.e. cummings. An except of the poem is quoted for the reader before the book begins. It is wrenching, as is the book. There are ten short stories offered in this book. Some take place during war, some after a soldier has returned home. Some are told in the first person, some in the third. There is a humility to the writing which unites the stories. These are very real people we are reading about. i would definitely say give it a good read.
