From Here to Eternity – the uncut version

from-here-to-eternityKaylie Jones, daughter of James Jones who wrote From Here to Eternity, has revealed that a homosexual sex storyline was edited out of her father’s classic novel. The Daily Beast has the story.

My father wanted to write an honest and truthful book about the peace-time Army preceding WWII, and he insisted that could not be done if the language and routines of the soldiers were eliminated from the book. The soldiers in Hawaii were dead broke, barely one step up from homeless.
