Reseña del editor: Losing Tim is a memoir by a mother about a soldier son who killed himself. It's not an easy read. But it's a beautiful one. Burroway, a National Book Award nominee, welcomes readers to grieve along with her, while also providing a lens into how soldiers, and military contractors, like her son, are changed by their combat experiences. Jonathan Shay, author of Achilles in Vietnam: Combat Trauma and the Undoing of Character, a highly acclaimed volume on PTSD, and a 2007 MacArthur Foundation Fellow, comments in the foreword, ''To me, the pain recalls Homer's Iliad, in which, as James Tatum puts it in The Mourner's Song, 'the beauty [of the poetry] is in the killing.'''
Praise for Losing Tim:
"This book is both an elegy and a call to action by one of our finest writers, who addresses us from the deepest place imaginable in a voice that is loving, memorable and overflowing with generosity."
