“Patiently, and unflinchingly, Ackerman is becoming one of the great poet laureates of America’s tragic adventurism across the globe.” (Pico Iyer)

Eden lies in a hospital bed, unable to move or speak. His wife Mary spends every day on the sofa in his room. We see them through the eyes of Eden’s best friend, a fellow Marine who didn’t make it back home — and who must relive the secrets held between all three of them as he waits for Eden to finally, mercifully die and join him in whatever comes after.  

A breathtakingly spare and shattering novel that explores the unseen aftereffects — and unacknowledged casualties — of war, Waiting for Eden is a piercingly insightful, deeply felt meditation on loyalty, friendship, betrayal, and love.
