Airman Mortensen said the wrong thing to the wrong man at the wrong time. Now he's cleaning latrines instead of sitting at a radio all day, but change of any kind is welcome. In the 1960s, being in the service is a drag no matter how you look at it. When a chance encounter at a dance hall brings him face to face with the love of his life, the Latrine King realizes that he just might be able to change the cards he's been dealt all on his own. With the same candid truthfulness that brought Dances With Wolves and The Holy Road to life, #1 New York Times bestselling author Michael Blake explores the experiences of one jaded military man with little past and seemingly no future. It's an exploration of love, friendship, and sexual awakening in the most unlikely of settings. Recalling the dissatisfied realism of Ken Kesey and Joseph Heller, Airman Mortensen will bring you back to a time when everyone was asking the right questions in all the wrong ways.
