Passing Time: Memoir of a Vietnam Veteran Against the War Reviews
The reader is transported through Ehrhart's painful struggle to cope with the aftermath of the Vietnam war. Ehrhart is an outstanding writer and each pages is drenched with his energy and anger. For fans of his poetry, or the anti-war movement, this volume frames the frustration felt by returning vets very well.
I have all of the author's books. He is an amazing writer, makes me feel as though I am there with him. Have given many copies as gifts to my Vietnam survivor friends. Highly recommend.
This book with its chapters in nonchronolgical order was revealing as to the way the author's experience before
he loved this gift. big surprise. could not wait to read. so far it is a good addition to his collections
Passing Time's time pasting took only one night! In that time W. D. Ehrhart flashed me back to '70, 68, 69, 71, and the nitexmasarclights of '72, Ho ho ho chi minhnity returns with both laughter and extreme anger! Ah! The ying and yang of it to me who calls Bill and old old dear friend whom I had never availed myself to his insight and wit like I did last night with Passing Time! Five stars *****, but never too soon to be a new motion picture. Of an old e-6 hippy from Perkasie, Pa, who graduated from Swarthmore College and worked at sea like all "Old Salt" gyrenes who went a few places, saw a few things and still live to tell about it in all speldid details from the heart. Perspicatious (if that can be now a new adjective!) jvb
