Kill Class


July Open 2016 Reading Period Selection

A poet and anthropologist explores the surprising world of war games in mock Middle Eastern villages in which the U.S. military trains. With deft lyrical attention, these documentary poems reveal the nuanced culture and violence of the war machine—alive and well within these basecamp villages, the American military, and, ultimately, the human heart.

“Part documentary, part poetry, Kill Class by Nomi Stone is completely arresting, unsettling, and crucial.” – Rachel Morgan, Editor, North American Review
