Abstract:

"When Walter Burke's buddy dies in a blood-soaked Vietnamese jungle, Walter finds himself writing a letter to the young man's parents. But as he struggles to put words on paper, all the trauma of his years growing up middle class and black in Birmingham, Alabama floods back into his mind. While enemies and the threat of death surround him in Vietnam, Walter relives the racial upheaval of the civil rights movement - and the subsequent disintegration of his family - even while he tries to make sense of his current place in a tragic war."
