Description
Miles Derry is a recovering alcoholic who, in his sole pursuit to make his monthly child support payment, has taken on a string of dead-end and often seedy jobs. One night, while working at the Little Pink Bookstore, he comes across a stiff -- in every sense of the word -- who turns out to be a chaplain in the U.S. Navy. Choosing to take the chaplain's identity as a way out of his own miserable life, Miles reports for duty on the U.S.S. Warren Harding as it embarks for Southeast Asia.<P>As the ship travels from Okinawa to the Philippines to Burma, Miles finds himself in murky waters. He discovers some discomfiting secrets about his married, secretly homosexual alter-ego, and the resulting mayhem ultimately transforms him. With all the tension of a Patricia Highsmith thriller and the humor and compassion of early John Irving, One of the Guys is a remarkable debut novel, at once beguiling and entertaining.
