The Coldest Night

Robert Olmstead

The recipient of a Guggenheim fellowship and the Heartland Prize for his fiction, Robert Olmstead crafts riveting prose about love, war, and the human condition. Set in 1950, The Coldest Night follows Henry, a marine who arrives in Korea just before the devastating Chosin Reservoir battle. Days of brutal fighting leave Henry forever haunted by what he’s seen, but the true depth of his scars doesn’t become apparent until he returns home—and finds that the combat he loathed may be the closest he’ll ever come to feeling truly alive.
