Georgia native David Zimmerman has a debut novel being called ”one of the most exciting publishing events of the year.” It’s already claimed great reviews (”Remarkable ... a talent to watch,” writes Publishers Weekly and an early readership who call it a ”powerful, realistic thriller.” It’s called The Sandbox, and it’s set in the Iraqi desert where Army Pvt. Toby Durant is stationed. He’s worried about his pregnant fiancee back home and is facing some serious questions about a bombing that has killed two of his military colleagues. Zimmerman builds a suspenseful, page-turning narrative as Toby struggles to survive amid deadly insurgents and a mission gone awry; it’s a classic story of a decent man trying to get by under impossible circumstances and a blistering look at Army life in Iraq. Zimmerman currently teaches at Iowa State University. (jasbro)
