Publishers Weekly believes it will be, “An instant classic,” and I believe the same. The short fiction I read by David Abrams in the lead up to the interview left me excited to read his novel.
As you can see, Fobbit is becoming a highly anticipated novel, one that will be of great importance for anyone interested in the Iraq war. Fobbit hits shelves in September 2012 from Grove/Atlantic Press. I’ll be pre-ordering my copy soon. If you’d like to do the same, you can Pre-order Fobbit at Amazon books. It’s also available for the Kindle.
