My life as a foreign country by Turner, Brian, 1967-

My life as a foreign country

"In this ... memoir, award-winning poet Brian Turner retraces his war experience--pre-deployment to combat zone, homecoming to aftermath. Free of self-indulgence or self-glorification, his account combines recollection with the imagination's efforts to make reality comprehensible. Across time, he seeks parallels in the histories of others who have gone to war, especially his taciturn grandfather (World War II), father (Cold War), and uncle (Vietnam). Turner also offers something that is truly ra

Perfectly awful - the Philadelphia 76ers' horrendous and hilarious 1972-1973 season

"During the 1972-73 season, the Philadelphia 76ers were not just a bad team; they were fantastically awful.

In conventional assessment, a slave losing a lawsuit against his master seems unremarkable. But in fact, that case was just one of many freedom suits brought by slaves in the antebellum period; an example
