Hotels, Hospitals and Jails CD-Audio
Narrated by Anthony Swofford
Following the success of Jarhead, Anthony Swofford assumed he had exorcised his military demons -- but as every veteran knows, that isn't exactly how it works.
In these searing, courageous pages, Swofford struggles to make sense of what his military service meant, and to decide -- after nearly ending it -- what his life can and should become.
Consumed by drugs, booze, fast cars and the wrong women, Swofford almost lost everything and everyone that mattered to him.
Embarking on a series of RV trips with his dying father, a Vietnam vet, in an attempt to heal their difficult relationship, and meeting a like-minded woman (who will become his wife) in a chance encounter, Swofford begins to grapple with his volatile past and forge a path toward redemption.
HOTELS, HOSPITALS, AND JAILS is a memoir that raises essential questions about masculinity, about fathers and sons, and about love.
