This PEN award Winner for Best Regional Fiction is a searing, heart rendering story of one American soldier's arduous odyssey from captivity to civilization and sanity.
One dreary. drizzling morning in 1973, months after the last American POW has been released from Vietnam, the Vietcong deliver a bedraggled man bound in wire to Corpsman Stanley Baker. The prisoner's name is Lieutenant William Hill and he's a former star quarterback and one of the Navy's best and brightest. The Pentagon assumed Hill died in a crash nine year's earlier in North Vietnam--now they learn he's very much alive.
What goes on in the mind of a man held prisoner for nine years? What is the sum effect of endless months of bamboo cages, beatings--and torture?
Sergeant Baker soon realizes that Hill's unlike other POWs. Hill doesn't speak and hoards food, and he seems to be searching for a way to escape the hospital.
As Baker and his superiors soon discover, Hill may have been released but his long walk home has just begun.
