Dear Mr. PresidentBook - 2002
Everybody' s Gulf War Syndrome is a little bit different. Or so believes Larry, who returns home from Desert Storm to find his hair gone and his bones rapidly disintegrating. Then there' s Lance Corporal James Laverne of the US Marines, who grows a third ear in Kuwait. And in the audaciously comic novella " Notes from a Bunker Along Highway 8, " a Green Beret deserts his team after seeing a vision of George Washington, only to find a new calling-- administering aid to wounded Iraqi civilians; he' s hindered only by the furtive nature of his mission and an unruly band of chimpanzees. Together these narratives form a bracing amalgamation of devastating humor and brilliant cultural observation, in which Gabe Hudson fearlessly explores the darker implications of American military power.
