Frags Book Review
Frags by Tim Trask is an excellent read. Here is what Tim Trask’s website has to say:
Dr. Frank Dotson, an esteemed biology professor at Columbia University, has a secret: the source of his spectacular success in biological theory is the work of a man who was killed in Vietnam in 1968. Before he was killed in the war, Harry Emerson entrusted Dotson with both his life’s work and the safety of his family.
FRAGS is a novel that takes place on the morning of January 11, 1991, on the eve of the Gulf War, beginning when Professor Dotson reads a letter from a young man also named Harry Emerson, a letter that threatens Dotson’s career and will change his life. He undergoes a series of flashbacks to his Army service in Vietnam as he faces and tries to come to terms with the prospect of being exposed as a fraud after more than twenty years as a successful academic.
He also has to take a hard look at himself:
“This is the first time he has ever really reflected on the depths of his failure toward this man Fearless, who had trusted him with every precious thing he had— his wife, his child, his life’s work.”
