Why to Read: There are many works of fiction about Vietnam, but none have ever approached the subject like this, addressing important issues of LGBT participation in the military with a fun, flashy story of love, music, and danger. The intense but loving tone, the clear presentation, and the high stakes keep the reader constantly engaged, as do the complex characters with competing motivations, the gripping central love story, and a bold protagonist whose sacrifices are enormous and admirable. With a boatload of possibilities for societal and political commentary, this is a prestige show ready and waiting to go.
