A powerful, compulsively page-turning, vivid, and moving tribute to the experience of war and PTSD,The White Donkey tells the story of Abe, a young Marine recruit who experiences the ugly, pedestrian, and often meaningless side of military service in rural Iraq. He enlists in hopes of finding that missingsomething in his life but comes to find out that it's not quite what he expected. Abe gets more than he bargained for when his journey takes him to the middle east in war-torn Iraq. This is a story about a Marine, written and illustrated by a Marine, and is the first graphic novel about the war in Iraq from a veteran. The White Donkeyexplores the experience of being a Marine, as well as the challenges that veterans face upon their return home, and its raw power will leave you in awe.

About the Author

The White Donkey was written and illustrated by infantry Marine and Iraq veteran Maximilian Uriarte, creator of the hit comic strip "Terminal Lance." Uriarte enlisted in the United States Marine Corps in 2006 at the age of 19 and served for four years. During his first deployment to Iraq in 2007 he served as an MRAP turret gunner and dismount of India Company's "Jump" platoon in the Zaidon region southeast of Fallujah. He deployed to Iraq again in 2009 as a billeted Combat Photographer and Combat Artist, then enrolling in California College of the Arts. In 2010 Uriarte created the popular comic strip "Terminal Lance" while still on active duty. The strip is now published in The Marine Corps Times and has grown immensely in popularity, with 450,000 Facebook followers and one million unique hits per month.

Reviews

"Uriarte has grasped at powerful mysteries-about what drives young people to join the military and willingly confront danger, about the experience of trauma and grief, and about friendship-and by the end of the book, has given us a portrait of one man's lonely, courageous attempt to come to terms with these mysteries."--Temple Cone, The Washington Free Beacon
