Sparta by Roxana Robinson( Sound Recording )
9 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 82 libraries worldwide
Conrad Farrell's family has no military heritage, but as a classics major at Williams, he saw the sturdy appeal of the Marine ethic: Semper fidelis came straight from the ancient world, from Sparta, where every citizen doubled as a full-time soldier. When Conrad joined the Marines after college, he expected to further a long tradition of honor, courage, and commitment. Now Conrad has just returned home to Westchester after four years in Iraq, and something is very wrong. Everything should be fine--he hasn't been shot or wounded by an IED, and he's never had psychological troubles--but as he attempts to reconnect with his girlfriend and find his footing in the civilian world, he has an impossible time adjusting to the people and places he used to love and to a commonplace life of hotel reservations, dinner conversation, long showers, and alone time. As the weeks turn into months, Conrad's bitterness only festers, and he begins to fear that his rage, when it comes out, will have irreparable consequences
