Hardback Editions

The Wing is a room of dead people who are still alive - the remnants of American soldiers in Korea whose hearts somehow still beat, men who have been reduced to mere portions of humans. They are too damaged to ever send home and their families believe them gone. It's the most peaceful place Rudy has ever been, and he befriends the only mentally coherent inhabitant, Guy X.

Rudy also falls in love with Irene, a sergeant. And he finds himself starting up a base newspaper.

No One Thinks of Greenland

And all the time the days are getting shorter. Soon the Stark Raving Dark of permanent night will be upon them all. As things degenerate and the future of Qangattarsa and the men who live their strange half-lives there becomes increasingly doubtful, Rudy realises he must find a way to save the people he loves - and himself. This is a moving, powerful and very funny portrait of human absurdity and tragedy that joins Catch as a classic of its kind.

John Griesemer has worked as a mental hospital orderly, a fisherman and a journalist. He lives with his family in New Hampshire. No One Thinks of Greenland is his first novel. For the latest books, recommendations, offers and more.

The violence at the end was shocking, but did not surprise me too much; after all, they called the time of winter "The Stark Raving Dark. The characters have considerable depth.
