    Following the success of Jarhead, Anthony Swofford assumed he had exorcised his military demons - but as every veteran knows, that isn't exactly how it works. In these searing, courageous pages, Swofford struggles to make sense of what his military service meant, and to decide - after nearly ending it - what his life can and should become. Consumed by drugs, booze, fast cars, and the wrong women, Swofford almost lost everything and everyone that mattered to him.

    Severin Boxx is the son of an Air Force pilot and lives on an Air Force base in Japan. He loves, from afar, Virginia Kindwall, the daughter of the general who runs the base. She has fallen in with the Japanese underground, and her dealings result in her disappearance. Years later, Severin and Virginia remain lost to each other - until an emotionally frayed, 30-something Severin embarks on a quest to find Virginia, and reclaim the part of himself taken from him when his boyhood abruptly ended.
