Redeployment is a quick but powerful and, for me, painful set of stories about the experience of ordinary soldiers in Iraq
BARACK OBAMA

Searing . . .
Gives the civilian reader a visceral feeling for what it is like to be a soldier in a combat zone, and what it is like to return home, still reeling from the dislocations of war. Gritty, unsparing and fiercely observed, these stories leave us with a harrowing sense of the war in Iraq as it was experienced, day by day, by individual soldiers
New York Times

Incendiary stories of war . . .
Redeployment is the real thing - a vivid and vital battery of war stories that does not rely solely on its subject matter for impact (although, make no mistake, the subject certainly has impact) . . . A must-read
Guardian

One of the great story collections of recent times
COLUM McCANN

Achingly beautiful
Financial Times

After the first reading I immediately began the second . . . Truly haunting, and truly, indisputably, brilliant
NIALL GRIFFITHS

Brilliant
Sunday Telegraph

Klay's short stories pull off something incredibly subtle
Sunday Times

In Klay's hands, Iraq comes across not merely as a theater of war but as a laboratory for the human condition in extremis . . . Redeployment is hilarious, biting, whipsawing and sad. It's the best thing written so far on what the war did to people's souls
New York Times Book Review

A masterwork in mostly spare prose, its tonal range from laugh-out-loud, Joseph Heller-esque absurdity to soul-crushing bleakness. It may be our best literary window into the Iraq war
