Jarhead by Anthony Swofford
Book DescriptionAnthony Swofford's grandfather fought in WWII; his father fought in Vietnam; and he - a directionless, testosterone-battered teenager - became a scout/sniper in the marines and fought in the Gulf War. His account of that time is also part of a lineage - after Wilfred Owen, Norman Mailer, Michael Herr and Tim O'Brien, it brings the raw and searing tradition of soldiers' stories up to date. A harrowing yet inspiring portrait of a tormented consciousness struggling for reconciliation and peace, JARHEAD is authentic, revelatory and brilliantly crafted.

Swofford follows up his bestselling "Jarhead" with an unforgettable first novel--a compelling story about the legacy of a youth spent inside the stark confines of a U.S. Military base in Japan--and the profane, neon netherworld just outside it, where the Japanese underworld lurks.
