A READING AND SIGNING WITH CALEB S. CAGE, AUTHOR OF DESERT MEMENTOS: STORIES OF IRAQ AND NEVADA
Desert Mementos is a collection of loosely connected short stories. They are bound together by the soldier’s searing experiences in the desert, and book-ended by his leaving and returning home to Nevada—a place which, in many ways, can be just as disorienting as the Iraq desert.
