1 Review
An intriguing journey toward that ambiguous place where courage and fear, heroism and cowardice, and ambition and disillusion meet, a ragged line that grants no easy separations. Mitchell writes with grace and authority about a man who, thinking himself finished with his own history, is forced to discover that his life still matters in his nation's long, unforgiving memory.
