Pick of the day: Post-war lit

By Christian Davenport

I suppose that as the war in Iraq dies down, we'll begin to step away and reflect on what it all really meant. There will be a time of catharsis and closure. And one of the ways we get there from here is through the literature produced by those who served, and traded a rifle for a pen. This piece from Sunday's Outlook section is one of the best stories from Iraq I've read in years, and I hope that it's only the beginning of a new genre of post-war memoirs to come.
