Wednesday, October 1 at 7 pm, Brad Jones discusses and signs Black Walls Turn Gray: A Veteran’s Novel of War and Recovery.
“Black Walls Turn Gray is a novel about the consequences of modern warfare and the struggles that soldiers face when readjusting to civilian life. Young, fit, and from a military family, Corporal Quince Magowan sees serving his country as his patriotic duty. Unfortunately, fighting in his generation’s war proves to be more than just a physical battle. When he returns home to his wife and young daughter, Quince finds that he has lost more than his sense of security. Though he is healthy by all appearances, darkness has trapped him in a painful prison, and he doesnt believe that anyone can understand his mental anguish. Eventually diagnosed with PTSD, Quince finds that the path to healing is complicated and difficult, but is supported through this journey by those he loves. This is a compelling story of filial and romantic love, of friendship, duty and heroism, and of America’s challenges in treating its veterans for the invisible wounds of modern warfare. Author and Afghanistan veteran Brad Jones brings this great American dilemma home in his first published novel.”
