Matt Young: Eat the Apple


At age 18, Matt Young signed up for the Marine Corps. "Eat the Apple" is a memoir that doesn’t read like a memoir—it is dark, dirty, morally ambiguous, and completely immersive. Young writes about the fractured memories and traumas of a soldier at war, playing freely with form and with a wicked sense of humor. "Eat the Apple" is a raw, remarkably unique look at war through the eyes of the common soldier.
