Seemingly ordinary things take on a breathtaking radiance when examined by this decorated Marine officer—veteran of two combat tours in Iraq—actor on the hit HBO series The Wire, and son of acclaimed novelist Frederick Busch. Above all, Benjamin Busch is a truly extraordinary new literary talent as evidenced by his exemplary debut, Dust to Dust—an original, emotionally powerful, and surprisingly refreshing take on an American soldier’s story.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Dust to Dust is not a typical contemporary war memoir…It partakes of the pastoral strain associated with World War I trench-poets like Edmund Blunden and Edward Thomas.” New York Times Book Review
“A beautiful meditation on war, loss, and the larger questions of life and death.” Huffington Post
“Essential Iraq War reading…The conflict between Busch’s pacifist upbringing and his evolution into a decorated Marine rests at the heart of this fine memoir.” Men’s Journal
