As heMoreWEAPONS OF CAIN, a memory-vision of Vietnam, is the spellbinding story of Lieutenant Joseph Tompsen, whose tour of duty in Vietnam introduces him to street-wise villagers who become his family and to military cohorts who become his antagonists. As he faces life on death’s terms, one shattering moment will forever change his world and theirs in this novel of loss and redemption.Author Thom Brucie has been called a voice of the unheard because of his ability to reveal the sometimes unheralded beatitudes of fortitude and charity through his stories of the everyday deeds of ordinary lives. His use of Vietnamese folklore and folk practices embellish the rich descriptions of place to create a setting so full of sensory detail that one feels as if the exotic village of Cam Ranh is located just down the road and around the corner.Thom Brucie earned a BA from Hobart College, an MA from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, and a PhD from Binghamton University, where his studies focused on creative writing- in addition, he studied and wrote exams in folklore and in American Literature.
