In the modern world, everything is connected, including how we kill. Join Hunter@Home for a thrilling evening as author and Hunter College alum Phil Klay (MFA ‘11) discusses his debut novel Missionaries with author Matt Gallagher on October 21, 7pm (EST).
In Missionaries, Klay, also an Iraq War veteran, examines the globalization of violence through the interlocking stories of four characters and the conflicts that define their lives. Drawing on six years of research in America and Colombia into the effects of the modern way of war on regular people, Klay has written a novel of extraordinary suspense infused with geopolitical sophistication and storytelling instincts that are second to none. Missionaries is a window not only into modern war, but into the individual lives that go on long after the drones have left the skies.
