How Can You Mend This Purple Heart?
'How Can You Mend this Purple Heart?' is a blistering fiction built around the 15 painful months author Terry Gould spent in a Vietnam Veterans' recovery ward during 1968/9. This is why his account not only rings faultlessly true, but also burns and bleeds the suffering of America's best who had typically been blown apart by a land mine, losing multiple limbs as they strained to save their minds and recover their sense of hope. 'How Can You Mend This Purple Heart?' is about those who always suffer the rough end of history, who used to beg on their stumps selling matches after previous wars where they were still regarded as heroes. Who returned from Vietnam a hero, and what happened to those who returned home in many pieces? 'Purple Heart' is about as powerful as it gets - the ultimate humane tribute to true warriors, to the indomitable nature of mankind.
