Book review

Winner of the 2012 Iron Horse Literary Review Single Author Chapbook Competition.

The linked stories in Brandon Davis Jennings’ Waiting for the Enemy take readers from the Middle East to the Mojave Desert and back again, revealing a cast of characters that find themselves, unrelentingly, at the intersection of expectation and desire.

In “Bosnian Roulette,” Derrick is haunted by a comrade’s misguided desire to be a hero. In “Boots,” Derrick and his buddy Rake try to come to terms with what happened the day their squad came across an abandoned naval mine in a small Bosnian town. The title story, “Waiting for the Enemy,” features Derrick and Rake parachuting into the desert for a third time, ready to engage opposition on the ground. Instead they’re left guarding an empty base that they've captured uncontested. Days pass with no sign of life other than a camel that stumbles down a sand dune and tangles itself in razor wire. At once darkly funny and devastatingly astute, Waiting for the Enemy clarifies, in stark, beautiful prose, what it means to be human when the lines of morality are blurred and living righteously is easier said than done.

Brandon Davis Jennings is an Operation Iraq Freedom Veteran from West Virginia. He received an MFA from Bowling Green State University and a PhD in creative writing from Western Michigan University. His first full-length book of nonfiction, The Red Book: Operation Iraqi Freedom is My Fault, will be released this summer from Little Presque Books. He currently writes in South Bend, Indiana, where he lives with his wife Tina, daughter Shannon, and two dogs.
