Title: The Boy Who Picked Up the Bullets
Description: New York: Morrow, 1981. 1st ed. Newman 236. 8vo. Cloth-backed boards. 420 p. Vietnam War novel "Kurt Strom is a Navy medic serving with the Marines in Vietnam in 1966 and 1967, Strom, a homosexual, tells the story of his service in letters home to several friends. His work as a medic involves some of the bloodiest and most realistic action in any Vietnam War novel. There are also numerous accounts of sexual activities, suggesting that homosexuality was at least on the scene among American forces in Vietnam. Strom is wounded twice, and when he returns home he is addicted to morphine. Nelson is an able writer. This is a book with a unique point of view" - Newman.
