In Black and White chronicles the Vietnam experience of two American soldiers; one black and one white. Though the novel includes some graphic scenes of war it is intended to be a backdrop and not the focus of the book. The emphasis is on the personal development of these men as they work through issues of friendship, love, war, racism and loss.
In Black And White is far more than a Vietnam War story. It is about coping with forced separation and loss of innocence. All of us can relate to overcoming overwhelming circumstances in our lives.
There are no heroes or heroines in, In Black And White. There are only survivors who have learned to love and to discover themselves through incredible odds.
