Penguin Vintage and Shortlist Magazine present an evening with Brian Van Reet, author of Spoils, the most anticpated debut novel of the year, at Concrete Space.

Set in the spring of 2003 as coalition forces are advancing on Iraq, this fast-paced, hard-hitting account of eight weeks in the lives of a captured US soldier and her battle-weary mujahideen captor forces us to reconsider the simplistic narratives of war spun by those in power. With its privileged insight into the reality of armed combat, Spoils shines a light on the uncertainty, fear and idealism that characterised the early days of one of the most important conflicts of our time.
