This book is sure to take the reader on a fast-paced ride, much like a winner-takes-all Basra card game. Set in the urban heart of a big city, Playing Basra is a series of short stories linked by the careening exploits of three well-intentioned but reckless brothers: a most satisfyimg read, like a meeting between Hemingway and The Trailer Park Boys. Brown’s rolicking descriptions and dialogue aptly express the quick and overwhelming experiences of young men in turmoil, right up through to the dramatic conclusion as the family deals with the consequences of a son’s enlistment and capture in an overseas war.
