Losing Tim

The Life and Death of an American Contractor in Iraq

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


From one of America's most distinguished authors, an unforgettable look at a mother's love and strength in the wake of a son's suicide. Burroway welcomes readers to grieve alongside her, while providing a lens into how soldiers, like her son, are haunted by their combat experiences. It is a bracing, beautiful read, gorgeous in its language and emotional honesty. Jonathan Shay, author of "Achilles in Vietnam: Combat Trauma and the Undoing of Character," comments in the foreword: "To me, the pain recalls Homer's 'Iliad.'" And Pulitzer Prize winner Madeleine Blais calls it "an elegy and a call to action." It is nothing less than that.
