Product Description:

"Exquisitely crafted. . . strikingly real and heartfelt." --Denver Post

"[A] potent literary novel . . . A deft portrait of an estranged couple whose pain is veiled by the fog of war." --People

A breathtaking novel of love, war, and betrayal from the critically acclaimed author of Loving Che and the New York Times Notable Book, In Cuba I Was a German Shepherd. From the battlefields of Afghanistan and Iraq to the strange, shimmering streets of Istanbul, The Last War is a "seductive meditation" (O, The Oprah Magazine) on cruelty and violence, love and identity from Pushcart Prize-winning author Ana Menendez.

Review:

"[The Last War] speaks to Ana Menndez's maturity--as a woman and a writer. . . . A character study of those who have found their purpose in bearing witness to bloodshed." -- New York Times Book Review

"Menndez's descriptions of the city are haunting and shadowy. . . . A precise and subtle book, full of finely realized flashbacks, the narrator's memories of a marriage and detailed descriptions of Istanbul and of the experience of adjusting to another home, another culture." -- Miami Herald

"Ana Menendez's The Last War offers us a moving and probing portrait of lovers and media warriors in this poignant and touching novel of crumbling friendships and marriages--betrayals, large and small--in a dicey and dangerous world."--Edwidge Danticat, author of Breath, Eyes, Memory and Brother, I'm Dying

"Menendez taps into [a] wellspring of broken promises and unfulfilled desires and gives us a . . . peek at . . . the Cuban-American experience."--Miami Herald on In Cuba I Was a German Shepherd

"Menendez is a skilled novelist - even admirers of her acclaimed short story collection, In Cuba I was a German Shepherd or her earlier novel, Loving Che, will be impressed with the deepening maturity of her writing. . . . [A] fully convincing psychological portrait."--South Florida Sun Sentinel

"Menendez shows with unblinking honesty in her self-assured second novel The Last War how in conflict and its aftermath journalists can find or lose themselves. . . . Mendendez's deep wisdom about people and their relationships is the payoff that always makes this insightful author worth reading."--St. Louis Post-Dispatch
