Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Dann Glenn is best known as a world-renowned bass virtuoso/composer with a large catalog of CD’s to his credit; many of which are modern orchestral symphonies. Mr. Glenn has many published articles in international magazines, having been known to the world music community as a gifted writer for quite some time. This novel however, is his first published book. Paralleling his music; this novel has the very same signature in terms of the stream of consciousness style of communicating his ideas. Dann was in the United States Army serving his tour of duty in Vietnam from March of 1969, until March of 1970. This novel is a clear example of the fact that he is a master storyteller and finds his muse in character-driven scenarios, rather than showering the reader with facts, figures, and minute details. The way in which he transports the reader through a portal of the imagination gives one the feeling of actually participating in the journey, as it unfolds. This depiction of a soldier’s life during the Vietnam War is but a primary foundation for the deeper and much more poignant subtleties of human consciousness. Dann extrapolates throughout this entire story, ultimately coming to one brutal conclusion; which has become his maxim. The Vietnam War has always nipped at the heels of this man as it has most of his brethren. Dann’s telling of this story and his portrayal of daily life for the American foot soldier gives a fresh perspective and insight into the mystique of the Vietnam Veteran. Well known to be an extremely reclusive artist, Mr. Glenn spends the brunt of his time composing, performing, and recording; while preparing for his next book. This author’s manic hunger to always see what’s around the next corner promises to leave a rich legacy; be it music or literature.
