Description:
British journalist Thomas Benton hasn't seen disgraced US army soldier Arwood Hobbes since they were both caught in Saddam Hussein's merciless suppression of rebels after Desert Storm. It was in the Shia village of Samawah that a girl in a green dress was shot in the back and died in Arwood's arms. Twenty-two years later, a new coalition has left behind another post-war Iraq and another uncertain future. The reason Arwood has called Benton, though, is not because of politics. It is because of a video - which went viral on the internet - of a mortar attack in Kurdistan that, astonishingly, may have killed the girl in green again.

Timely and telling - 2016 marks the 25th anniversary of the Gulf War and is election year in the US - The Girl in Green explores the troubled landscape of the Middle East, and the West's foreign-policy agenda, with all the wit, skill, and insight of Miller's acclaimed debut.
