FROM THE PUBLISHER - For many young men and women in rural America, the armed services have long represented a ticket to a wider world. The eleven stories in John A. Miller's extraordinary debut illuminate the irony that lurks behind that tradition: there is no escaping a soldier's life. With a clear voice and stark power, Miller draws us into the unexplored lives of these soldiers - and their lovers, acquaintances, and kin - revealing the often unexpected consequences of military service. Richly evocative and quietly devastating, these stories chronicle a world both haunted by sadness, and sustained by hope. Very Good In Slightly Worn Dustjacket. Bookseller Inventory # 25430
Synopsis: For many young men and women in rural America, the armed services have long represented a ticket to a wider world. The 11 stories in this critically acclaimed collection illuminate the irony behind that thinking.
