Death Coming Up the Hill

(2014)
A novel by

 
 
A strikingly innovative and powerful story, Death Coming Up the Hill portrays the momentous events of the year 1968 as seen through the eyes of a perceptive seventeen-year-old boy.



"Take a look at this gripping, fast-moving quick pick." - The Bulletin

It's 1968, and war is not foreign to seventeen-year-old Ashe. His racist father married his peace-activist mother when she became pregnant with him, and ever since, the couple, like the situation in Vietnam, has been engaged in a "senseless war that could have been prevented." When his high school teacher dares to teach the political realities of the war, Ashe grows to better understand the situation in Vietnam, his family, and the world around him. But when a new crisis hits his parents' marriage, Ashe finds himself trapped, with no options before him but to enter the fray.
