Benjamin Busch was a Marine in Iraq, acted as Anthony Colicchio in The Wire, makes films and has been a radio commentator.
Turns out he’s a good memoirist too. In Dust to Dust he writes about his childhood in rural New York (his parents had NO intention of raising a soldier, of course), his life through Vassar, Marine training camp, Iraq, and family life in.)
With chapters titled “Arms, Water, Metal, Soil, Bone, Wood, Stone, Blood, and Ash, this is truly an “extraordinary memoir about ordinary things.”
“[Busch] writes with the precision of a stonemason, the courage of a combat veteran, and the inquisitiveness of an artist. . . . A haunting meditation on time, memory, and death.” Baltimore City Paper
