Editorial Reviews

Review

"White recalls the grueling yet confidence-building three-month Marine Corps boot camp training he endured as a still-closeted teenager in 1979. "I learned that I had to respect myself if I wanted others to respect me." The author demonstrates that respect and delivers a heartening coming-of-age story... an inspiring memoir that displays a balanced, surprisingly reverent view of the Marine Corps and military service." Kirkus Reviews

"The Pink Marine is a beautifully detailed, passionately written and very necessary book - it's the fascinating and surprising story of a gay man in the military, told with respect, wit and insight." Paul Rudnick, Playwright, Screenwriter, Essayist, Novelist

"Hilarious...this gifted writer manages to find incredible humor in a remarkable chapter of his life." He Said Magazine

"This is the story of how, through pure gumption, a most unlikely Marine candidate rises to the occasion to show his true colors." Jane Lynch, Actress (Glee, Hollywood Game Night, Angel From Hell)

"While I served in the military, the Air Force was a social club compared to the Marines. I've known Greg Cope White for years, and have admired him every minute throughout. That he could write as intriguing and honest a book as The Pink Marine is no surprise." Norman Lear, TV Legend

"Greg Cope White takes on the universal tragedy of human isolation and the fear of exposure with such humor and grace that it becomes a triumphant comedy." Dylan Brody, Author, Humorist

"A very funny story... also somewhat heart breaking.... insightful and beautiful look at struggle and commitment." Amos Lassen

"What's a gay man to do when a roomful of naked men is a minefield rather than the set-up for a hot fantasy? In this riotously funny peek into USMC boot camp Greg finds both the ultimate test of will and a camaraderie he'll never lose. The Pink Marine puts the "A" back in YA!" Susie Bright, Author, publisher, Editor-at-Large at Audible

"Engrossing...." Boy Culture
