The God of War (Hardcover)
April 2009 Indie Next List
“Twelve-year-old Ares Ramirez lives in a trailer on the desolate shores of California's Salton Sea, where he tries to take care of his handicapped brother. Silver is a gifted writer whose story of a young man struggling with the burden of responsibility takes us to places both in the landscape and in the heart that enrich us as readers and make us grateful for such storytellers.”
— Marian Nielsen, Orinda Books, Orinda, CA
Like Joan Didion, Marisa Silver finds metaphors for disconnection in Los Angeles's arid sprawl ("The New York Times Book Review"), and in "The God of War," Silver sets in the California desert an indelible novel of the end of childhood.
