--"The Sacramento Bee"
--Michiko Kakutani, "The New York Times"
Author of "Any Human Heart"
A scathingly honest and bleakly powerful book. A hugely disturbing insight into the minds of the very young men who long to go to war.
Author of "Odysseus in America" and "Achilles in Vietnam"
This memoir is not pretty -- but veined with beauty. It is as outrageous, irreverent, funny, and obscene as an Aristophanes comedy, and as rich in pain and moral understanding as the "Iliad." Anthony Swofford: remember this name.
