Kevin Powers talks to Jenny Valentine

Fictions – The Yellow Birds

Hay Festival 2013 , 

The poet and Iraq veteran Kevin Powers has composed an unforgettable account of friendship and loss. It vividly captures the desperation and brutality of war, and its terrible after-effects. But it is also a story of love, of great courage, and of extraordinary human survival.
