Dwight Garner…not the best book written by an insider about America's post-9/11 military, but it's certainly the most entertaining. It's got a cocky, star-spangled, wide-angle feel, as if a subversive young novelist had decided to rewrite a Tom Clancy thriller after first piloting some nuclear submarines as a gonzo practice drill…Here's the real reason that My Nuclear Family is hard to put down, though: Because of its rolling, seriocomic thunder and because of all the carnage, satiric and otherwise, Mr. Brownfield is willing to strew about. This is a book that's going to rattle some cages.
