Benjamin Busch's hard hitting tome "Dust To Dust is NOW out in paperback! "Dust To Dust" is a profound meditation on our passage through life, from a decorated Marine Corps combat veteran & actor on "The Wire". I've never had the opportunity to watch "The Wire" on television but friends tell me that it is a good ,or even better than the Sopranos. Hard to imagine! I know "The Wire" is one of president Obama's favorite TV shows. "Dust To Dust" author Benjamin Busch plays Officer Anthony Colicchio on "The Wire"" & he has also served 2 tours of combat duty as a U.S. Marine in Iraq. The New York Times Book Review says "Dust to Dust" is not a typical contemporary war memoir...It partakes of the pastoral strain associated with World War I trench-poets like Edmund Blunden & Edward Thomas...War's distillation of violence & tragedy...offers a more intensified version of the ruin Busch already feels around around him. This sensibility finds its perfect home in the Michigan farmland he buys, its earth roiling with poison". WOW...that's a mouth full! I couldn't come up with that one...I guess that's why I'm writing blogs & not working for the New York Times! Novelist Ward Just says, ""Dust To Dust" is a wonderful book, original in concept & stunningly written, a soldier's memoir that is about soldiering & much else besides. The last 2 dozen pages are a tour de force, a breathtaking meditation on loss & remembrance, dust to dust". I'm the Puffman & I say, "It's must be a romp"!  Check it out today at: www.eccobooks.com, An Imprint of HarperCollinsPublishers. I may be giving this riveting read away as our prize this Saturday morning on Puffman Sports Trivia, stay tuned...
