Gary ShteyngartThe truly indispensable part of this book is its final section. Once we finally get to Iraq, Ayres is at his journalistic and comic best. The scene in which Ayres tries to complete a bowel movement over what turns out to be a tarantula's nest will change the way you think about evacuations forever. But the heart of the book is the relationship between the wusslike Briton and the gutsy soldiers he is assigned to cover.
