When the Hell Will Start

Last week I received  a review copy of Brendan Koerner’s book Now the Hell Will  Start. It is about Herman Perry, a black soldier from Washington who killed a white officer and escaped into the Burmese jungle during World  War II. I’ve only read 20 pages or so, but I’m hoping to get a chunk of it read in the next  week or so. You’ve seen Brendan’s work on Slate and in Wired (even if you don’t know it: he wrote 200 or so of Slate’s wicked Explainer columns).  Tomorrow he’s doing a live IRC chat on BoingBoing.

Here‘s the book’s website.

Here’s a previous review on BB.
