Michael Knight has told a young man's WWII story as a typist during the occupation of Japan under MacArthur with a different perspective. This is the story of a non-combat soldier who types 95wpm. He must come to an understanding of the events and people around him. His brand new wife becomes pregnant back home in Alabama by someone else. His roommate is dealing in the black market. His roommate has also fallen in love with Namiki, a department store mannequin model. He is also called upon to play each Saturday with MacArthur's son who has no playmates in Tokyo. The flow of Knight's written words is just perfect in showing the typist's feelings on all these events and how he will come to a maturity to handle it all. A bookclub would have plenty to discuss from the actions of the characters in this book.
