Monty Python-esque trailer captures glorious tragicomedy of David Abrams' FOBBIT

A book I've been recommending all over the place this year: FOBBIT by David Abrams.

"Fobbit" is a (non complimentary) term referring to A U.S. soldier stationed at a Forward Operating Base who avoids combat by remaining at the base. It's also Abrams' job descriptions during Operation Iraqi Freedom. (He served as a journalist in the Army for 20 years.)

Abrams' grimly hilarious debut novel based on his experience in Iraq was named a NYT Notable Book last year. A lot of reviewers (including me) compared it to Catch-22. It's that good. And it's that funny.

Check out the freshly minted trailer from the publisher:
