Overview

Nothing in Reserve invites the reader to an intimate glimpse of one retread soldier's journey to Iraq and back. True stories set in wartime, these are not war stories.

Jack Lewis offers an unexpectedly vulnerable glimpse into one of the timeless tests men have faced: going to war, and returning home. While the veteran will find honesty and truth within, this book is accessible to the uninitiated as well.

Early stories give an authentic but often funny glimpse of military life, building to a crisis of personality all too common among returning soldiers. Exploring the universal human question of how we move through our lives, acknowledging mortality and pain without becoming lost within it, Jack shares with us his own journey toward elusive redemption.

Editorial Reviews

Andrew Carroll
Every once in a while an author comes along who, through the sheer force and intensity of his prose, knocks you flat. To me, Jack Lewis is that writer and truly one of the great, literary heavyweights of his generation. No matter what subject he takes on, no matter how familiar we might initially assume it to be, Jack transforms it into something fresh, dynamic, and unforgettable.
