Summary
Following the success of Jarhead, Anthony Swofford assumed he had exorcised his military demons--but as every veteran knows, that isn't exactly how it works. In these searing, courageous pages, Swofford struggles to make sense of what his military service meant, and to decide--after nearly ending it--what his life can and should become. Consumed by drugs, booze, fast cars, and the wrong women, Swofford almost lost everything and everyone that mattered to him. Embarking on a series of RV trips with his dying father, a Vietnam vet, in an attempt to heal their difficult relationship, and meeting a like-minded woman (who will become his wife) in a chance encounter, Swofford begins to grapple with his volatile past and forge a path toward redemption. Hotels, Hospitals, and Jails is a must-read memoir that raises essential questions about masculinity, about fathers and sons, and about love
