EARLY PRAISE FOR WOLF SEASON

“No one writes with more authority or cool-eyed compassion about the experience of women in war both on and off the battlefield than Helen Benedict. In Wolf Season, she shows us the complicated ways in which the lives of those who serve and those who don’t intertwine and how—regardless of whether you are a soldier, the family of a soldier, or a refugee—the war follows you and your children for generations. Wolf Season is more than a novel for our times; it should be required reading.”
— Elissa Schappell, author of Use Me and Blueprints for Building Better Girls

“Fierce and vivid and full of hope, this story of trauma and resilience, of love and family, of mutual aid and solidarity in the aftermath of a brutal war is nothing short of magic. Helen Benedict is the voice of an American conscience that has all too often been silenced. To read these pages is to be transported to a world beyond hype and propaganda to see the human cost of war up close. This is not a novel that allows you to walk away unchanged.”
— Cara Hoffman, author of Be Safe I Love You and Running

“A novel of love, loss, and survival, Wolf Season delves into the complexities and murk of the after-war with blazing clarity. You will come to treasure these characters for their strengths and foibles alike. Helen Benedict has delivered yet again, and contemporary war literature is much the better for it.”
— Matt Gallagher, author of Kaboom: Embracing the Suck in a Savage Little War and Youngblood

Chronogram reviewed Wolf Season, writing, "Benedict, who did years of research for her nonfiction book The Lonely Soldier (2009)—about women serving in the Iraq war—writes deftly, authoritatively, and evenhandedly about war...The characters are not particularly happy nor are their story lines neat but they feel genuine. Wolf Season reminds us that we do what's best for our family—our pack—even if it's the thing that hurts the most."
