The most controversial parts of the this extraordinary story begin well before Vietnam in the United States and in several Asian cities where the young man was often sidetracked by passion, crime, poverty, recklessness, and drawn into subversive activities no patriotic American should admire. He reveals his story in a strikingly personal and provocative style. This tome you hold in your hand may be a kind of stark "Catcher in the Rye for mature adults. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
