Seductive soldier and shameless alcoholic, Will Strief was made to be broken and transcendental. After spending his entire adult life in the military, jumping out of planes and living a hero's life, Strief is left in the gutter of civilian life in Marseille, France after a devasting injury in the French Foreign Legion. Now, at twenty-three, he is reveling in his suddenly liberating rock-star life: hilarious drug experiences, vicious drinking, and a delirious sex life that would put any lesser man in the ground.
With all of Stribling's real-life experience, the story is as bona fide as it is uncovering. Said to be a must-read for women to understand the mind of man. Stribling writes a psychological fiction that delves into the restless mind of a young adult trying to understand himself and the world. It is dirty realism and dark humor and deep philosophy in this relentless tale of life on the edge.
