“Original and illuminating”

—The New York Sun

“Funny and heartbreaking”

—The New York Post

“Kulish, a former war correspondent, devises the perfect carrot/stick combo for our Paris Hilton-ized generation: a passionate critique of modern warfare disguised as lad lit. This one’ll sneak up on you.”

“Gossip columnists may want to keep their editors from reading “Last One In,” the upcoming HarperCollins novel by Nicholas Kulish, who was embedded with a Marine attack helicopter unit for The Wall Street Journal. The dark-comic tale, out this July, features a columnist for ‘The New York Daily Herald’ who gets railroaded into covering the invasion of Iraq after he wrongly accuses a big star of cheating on his wife and gets the paper sued.”

—New York Post “Page Six”

“[A] steady flow of Yossarian-flavored absurdity.”

—Publishers Weekly
