New Novel Depicts War in Afghanistan
Tune in at 12:30 p.m. Sunday to KAZI 88.7FM for my interview with John Renehan, author of the novel THE VALLEY.
THE VALLEY explores the alienation of an American officer sent to investigate a warning shot fired by a near-forgotten platoon at remote and dangerous forward operating base in Afghanistan on the border of pakistan. In the novel, Tenehan not only provides us a glimpse of the daily challenges and frustrations of our soldiers at war, but also shows the complex politics of the shifting alliances between the afghanistan tribes and the Taliban.
Currently an attorney, John Renehan served in the Army’s Third Infantry Division as a field artillery officer in Iraq.
