He asked me at the launch party where I was in the book, I said something flippant like, "you were on a boat..." because I didn't want to tell him that his book is scary to my life story, and hard to read for more than pages at a time.
Yes Fred, I am reading your book. I thank you for the acknowledgment. I am going to write a review after I'm done reading. I am humbled by every page.
Again I say, the more I read of his novel, the more I am afraid to, but the more I need to. PTSD... there's a ping in there that links so many parts of my life. I have nothing to do with it really, but it has a LOT to do with me. I want to read more, learn more, do more, but I really feel like I need to shut up a stay here a minute with Raw Man.
Buy his book and let's talk about it, especially if you are children of Nam Veterans.
