Greg Baxter, author of The Apartment

Greg Baxter’s debut novel is the story of an Iraq War veteran who moves from his American hometown to an unnamed European city. On a snowy December day, a young woman the narrator met weeks earlier helps him look for an apartment. The book, which takes place over the course of that day, is a chronicle of regret and a meditation on violence and those who would exploit it for personal gain.
