The End Of My Life

The End of My Life draws heavily on Bourjaily's experience as a volunteer ambulance driver during the Second World War. Inevitably critics compared it -- mostly favourably -- to Hemingway's A Farewell to Arms. Its matter-of-fact, uninflected acknowledgment of the presence of homosexuals in the armed forces was remarkable for the time, although most critics chose not to remark on it at all. The book was well reviewed.
