National Book Award-nominated author of Dark at the Crossing, Elliot Ackerman presents a shattering new novel that traces the intersection of three star-crossed lives. Veteran Eden Malcom lies in a bed, unable to move or to speak. His wife Mary spends every day on the sofa in his hospital room. But on Christmas, the one day Mary is not at his bedside, Eden’s re-ordered consciousness comes flickering to life. As he begins to find a way to communicate, some troubling truths about his marriage—and about his life before he went to war—come to the surface. A piercingly insightful, deeply felt meditation on loyalty and betrayal, Waiting for Eden is a tour de force of profound humanity.
