Product Details

Praise

“[I] am reading No Ordinary Joes. Should have had a medical checkup before I started it. Colton makes us fall in love with these guys, then puts our hearts in harm’s way. It’s lovely and ghastly and extremely powerful. His best yet.”
–Katherine Dunn, National Book Award finalist, author of Geek Love

“No Ordinary Joes is a marvelous treatment of a special time in American history, as well as an up close and personal look at the devastating impact that war can have on the personal lives of those involved in it.  Let’s have a twenty-one gun salute for Larry Colton!”
–John T. (Jack) Ramsay, Former Navy Ensign, Underwater Demolition Team #30
Basketball Analyst, ESPN TV and Radio
 
“Larry Colton’s Ordinary Joes are just like us, yet they endure what we could never imagine, and are ennobled in ways they themselves might not claim. Intimate and epic, unblinking and even-handed, Colton’s engrossing story strips sentimentality and cliché from our notion of hero.”
–Ron Shelton, award-winning screenwriter and director of Bull Durham, White Men Can’t Jump and Tin Cup
