|General Note:|| Forward by Kurt Vonnegut, Indiana author.
|Summary, etc.:|| Two friends return home from the Korean War to find their world-and themselves-irrevocably altered in this novel hailed by Kurt Vonnegut as "gruesomely accurate and enchanting" and "wildly sexy" Willard "Sonny" Burns and Tom "Gunner" Casselman, Korean War vets and former classmates, reunite on the train ride home to Indianapolis. Despite their shared history, the two young men could not be more different: Sonny had been an introverted, bookish student, whereas Gunner had been the consummate Casanova and athlete-and a popular source of macho pride throughout the high school. Reunited by the pains of war, they go in search of finding love, rebuilding their lives, and shedding the repressive expectations of their families. As Sonny and Gunner seek their true passions, the stage is set for a wounded, gripping account of disillusionment and self-discovery as seen through the lens of the conservative Midwest in the summer of 1954.
