The year is 1963, the place Southeast Asia. Discharged early from the U.S. Navy, Sam Malloy is estranged from America and running a hotel in Bangkok. His brother, Charlie, is in Saigon covering the Vietnam War for Time magazine. Anne Sinclair, a lovely, idealistic young assistant to the director of the U.S. Information Service, is becoming tormented by the lies she must write on behalf of the U.S. government. Charlie introduces Anne to Sam, and, to coin a phrase, the rest is history. They share their darkest secrets, commiserate about America's involvement in the war effort, and resolve to do something about it. Reminiscent of C.J. Koch's The Year of Living Dangerously, this is a tale of love, war, and disillusionment. The story is enhanced by the inclusion of real-life figures; fact and fiction blend to create a highly engaging story. Recommended for all collections.
