The Tenth of December by George Saunders

The literary equivalent of a series of violent muggings. Most of these
have a gut-punch moment... and you think that's it. Then you get to the
end and you realize that Saunders was stealing your wallet the whole
time.

The Yellow Birds by Kevin Powers

What a perfect war-novel! It was real without overdramatization, sentimental without nostalgia, violent without idealization, and richly sincere. The novel was clearly written by a poet/veteran as it felt like a Terrence Malick film throughout. My favorite for the next Pulitzer!
