Event date: 
Thursday, March 29, 2012 - 6:30pm

Tim O’Brien meets Annie Dillard in this tough and tender debut memoir about our passage through life from a decorated Marine and actor who played a cop in The Wire


Every religious practice I know contains a facet in which knowledge of your own mortality draws you closer to the ultimate truth. Now this brave soldier with his singular sensibility renders for us a life borne of that wisdom. With hippie parents denying him even a plastic cowboy gun, Benjamin Busch nonetheless was molded into one of Camus’s perfect men: alert in the instant with a clear-eyed view of contingency and reflexes to act. In Dust to Dust, he builds us a fort we’re loath to leave.”—Mary Karr, author The Liars’ Club, Cherry, and Lit
