I've never been a big fan of poetry, but I'm a huge fan of Lloyd King and his hard-hitting, vivid honesty! Covering topics from his first day in Vietnam to getting shot in the head to coming home, his work is a violent storm of beauty, emotion, fear, humility, and faith, which paint an honest picture of the ugliness of war and the brotherhood of troops in combat. By reading it, I learned a little about poetry, a little more about Vietnam, and a whole bunch about the poet. I absolutely could not put it down, and think that it is a perfect book for either poetry lovers or combat veterans.
