Inhaltsangabe: Of all the books to come out of Vietnam, "Trip Across The Pond" is extraordinarily different and down to earth by way of details and the human-interest aspect; which, bring us into the story almost as if we were there. It is a striking blend done in a vivid style that provides us with a slant on the psyche of the times, a dramatic and moving recantation.
Thomas K. DuGan begins with an operation then flashes back to a time before induction into the armed forces. We learn about incidental experiences, absurdities that have not been revealed to us before. DuGan takes us through four straight-leg infantry divisions covering areas as; Camp Bear Cat, Ben Hoa, Long Benh, Saigon, Bien Dong island, Dau Tieng, Camp Rainier, Tay Ninh and Cam Ranh Bay.
By writing "TAP" DuGan has made himself a place on the shelf beside Remarque, Graves, Mailer, Sajer, Hagerman, Caputo, Santoli, Kovic, Hasford, and Hieneman; all whom would no doubt agree- DuGans book belongs to the brotherhood.
Thomas K. DuGan states; "In 'Trip Across The Pond' there is no gory. We as a society do not need that. Instead, I painted the absurdities/insanity's experienced by me -there is no heresy. By revealing the absurdities/insanity's experienced by me, the soldiers day to day struggle for survival, his hand tied behind his back, drugs pushed down his throat, will give people a better understanding thus bridging the gap between the soldier and them."
Vom Verlag: Thomas K. DuGan has a true geinus for mastering words in such a way that the reader is given a different angle, a clearer understanding of the subject they are reading.
DuGan is a true character, a landmark in a long highway of hustle and confusion. Although he may be considered a bit more than eccentirc to many, he is well grounded and shows a clear direction and clarity to those that understand -those that may see him. Any way one chooses to preceive it, DuGan and his expressions are an interesting and entertaining diversion from the ordinary.
It is rare that we get to meet anyone truly unique. Most are caught in a cycle of con-formity to one degree or another. Thomas K. DuGan is truly an original, and meeting him, reading his writings will not soon be forgotten.
