A tightly crafted search for redemption within the shadows of a family’s past. Set in a rustbelt town south of Chicago, this is the story of Bruno Konick, a troubled veteran of World War II, and his grandson Luke, a boy forever dreaming of heroism in a post-Vietnam America. Examining the relationships between fathers and sons, between men and hictory, this novel echoes Hemingway's actuality, and Buckman’s vision heeds Faulkner's call for basic humanity.

"[Water in Darkness] should carry an R-rating, but unlike the average movie, it earns these elements . . ."
Publishers Weekly

Daniel Buckman was born in 1967 and served as a paratrooper with the US Army. He lives in Chicago.
