Owning land is the American Dream. Witness one man's overwhelming determination to protect his land, at all costs, in hopes of someday finally realizing his own American Dream.About the Author:
After serving 26 months and 11 days in Vietnam the author, Lawrence Klepinger, came back to a country bitterly divided regarding the war in Vietnam - and those who served in it. Upon graduation from San Jose State University with both a BA in political science and an MA in education, Mr. Klepinger traveled to Japan and ended up staying there for over 20 years, during which time he wrote LAND while teaching English at various universities in the city of Nagoya, approximately 350 miles south of Tokyo. While in Japan he met many Japanese veterans of WWII and discovered that, to some degree, all veterans are brothers - especially those who return home branded as losers. It was this insight that helped him construct the parameters that he so intricately sets up in this gripping novel that not only depicts the hardships that all veterans go through when returning from war but also the hidden, societal hypocrisy that plagues every veteran no matter what rank or color. In addition, Mr. Klepinger draws on the very personal experience of having not one - but two - childhood homes condemned by California's eminent domain law and to this day still remembers his father receiving the eviction notice from a state employee, then turning around and walking outside to his backyard and starting to cry. Lawrence Klepinger has lived LAND. Now he has written about it.
