Cologne No. 10 For Men – Fact or Fiction

Sin City - Ankhe, Vietnam, 1967

Sin City – Camp Radcliffe – Ankhe, Vietnam, 1967

Writer’s Digest calls Cologne No. 10 For Men “a superb novel of the Vietnam war, a novel that compares favorably with those earlier ‘dark humor’ war novels such as CATCH-22 and M.A.S.H. The writing crackles with authenticity,”  Cologne No. 10 For Men Coverand David Willson, Books in Review II, The Vietnam Veterans of America Veteran, said “There aren’t very many funny Vietnam War infantry books. This is one of them. Read it and be amazed.” Kirkus Reviews called it “A funny and serviceable satire about the gross rationalizations that propel war and peace.” “. . . like Catch-22 or M.A.S.H.” Cologne No. 10 For Men has been selected for inclusion in the Naval Academy Library in Annapolis, MD.

But after fifty years, memories have faded, and people may ask what is fact or fiction in the book?  What is true, and what is fake news in this satire?

I’ll let you know on Friday, March 17th at 7:00 p.m. at Robert Harper Books, Riverdale Park Town Center, 6216 Rhode Island Avenue, Riverdale Park, MD 20737 by the railroad station. Author Tom Glenn will follow me and talk about his new novel, Last of the Annamese.

I will also introduce my new novel, Masjid Morning, in which Atif and Amy fall in love while their families feud over construction of a mosque. Kirkus Reviews called it, “A thought-provoking and ultimately moving story that looks at love, human nature, and conservative religion,” and Kathy Cunningham calls it, “A powerful novel about hate and intolerance–religious and racial. But even more than that, it’s a Romeo and Juliet romance about two young people caught up in their parents’ feud.”  Edd Doerr, President of Americans for Religious Liberty says, “With Islamophobia on the rise in the U.S., publication of this interesting novel is quite timely. Its two intertwining plot lines converge in a stunning denouement that I won’t reveal.”
