Not since Peyton Place has there been such a merciless exposé of the American experience in all its beauty, fragility, and raw brutal ugliness. Set in the mid-60s in a small town just starting to experience the horror of the Vietnam War, this powerful character-driven novella incorporates all the archetypes: the loving parent, the bully, the simple minded fool, the one who is asleep, the guilty, the angry, the vengeful, the innocent. Each page draws us in, each scene brings us closer to the inevitable final disaster while Jeffrey Miller, ruthlessly in charge of everyone’s fate, presides over our emotions as he decides who will pay the ultimate price for humanity. A literary triumph and a page turner!
Review of Ice Cream Headache — Boston Literary Magazine
Reviews“In War Remains, Jeffrey Miller has penned a gripping story of the Korean War through the eyes and hearts of a soldier, his comrades in arms, and the family he left behind. Vivid and wrenching battle scenes provide counterpoint for the present-day search of a soldier's grandson for the grandfather he and his father never knew. With elegant and skillful prose, Miller brings home to the reader the chaos and terror of battle, the ache of loss, and the bittersweet cup of remembrance. This novel will give those three letters MIA new and deeper meaning to all who read it. In the end, War Remains is a deeply satisfying affirmation of the gratitude and regard due those who sacrificed so much in a war forgotten by too many.” - Steven Spruill, author of Ice Men
