Eastern Sun, Winter Moon : An Autobiographical Odyssey
As one savage war ends, another begins, just as savage - and this time endless. Fifty years after World War II, Gary Paulsen paints a self-portrait of a young boy drawn helplessly into the vortex of that war. His testimony to its horrors, to an early and traumatic exposure to sex, and to the wreckage of his family life spares neither himself nor his audience. Told with the startling frankness and candor of a young boy, Eastern Sun, Winter Moon will shock, outrage, and, ultimately, give readers a larger understanding of war, family, and desire.
