Anthony Swofford -- "Hotels, Hospitals, and Jails: A Memoir"
06/19/2012 7:30 pm
Anthony Swofford will speak about and sign his new book, Hotels, Hospitals, and Jails: A Memoir, on Tuesday, June 19th at 7:30pm.
About the book:
Following the success of Jarhead, Anthony Swofford assumed he had exorcised his military demons—but as veterans know, that isn’t how it works. Consumed by drugs, booze, fast cars, and the wrong women, Swofford almost lost everything and everyone who mattered to him. Embarking on a series of road trips with his dying father, a Vietnam vet, Swofford begins to grapple with his volatile past and forge a path toward redemption. Hotels, Hospitals, and Jails is a must-read memoir that raises essential questions about masculinity, about fathers and sons, and about love.
