Many of the stories upend expectations of the act of storytelling, as in "Corrections and Clarifications," written entirely in the form of newspaper corrections, or "Return-to-Sensibility Problems after Penetrating Captive Bolt Stunning of Cattle in Commercial Beef Slaughter Plant Confidential Report," which begins as a straightforward account of slaughterhouse operations but quickly devolves into something wholly surprising and different. Warner's relentlessly inventive stories are reminiscent of the works of Donald Barthelme, George Saunders, and Amy Hempel.

Tough Day for the Army is as striking and original a collection of stories as you're likely to come across in a day's march. In Tough Day for the Army , Warner is at his best. He takes bold chances and the risk always pays off. The highlight of the collection is 'Homosexuals Threaten the Sanctity of Norman's Marriage,' as Warner cleverly reveals that the real threat to any marriage rises from within and still allows Norman, poor misguided Norman, to try to become a better man.
