Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

A collection of vignettes by the late Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award-winning author of The Confessions of Nat Turner is culled from abandoned manuscripts based on his experiences as a Marine and features characters who struggle with the rigors and restrictions of military life. Simultaneous.


Review:

"These fragments of thinly fictionalized autobiographical narratives carry the hallmarks of outstanding midcentury American literature, not least in their blurring of fiction and fact, and in their sheer literary exuberance....To read the present collection is to be reminded of [Styron's] talent..."

Josiah Bunting III, Wall Street Journal, 10/03/2009

Review:

"[E]xceptionally interesting....[The stories] are strongly autobiographical and very funny, much in the way that the opening section of SOPHIE'S CHOICE is autobiographical and funny; without knowing it, Styron would seem to have been making a practice run for the finest of his novels in this unfinished but tantalizing work."

Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post, 10/04/2009
