Adjustment Disorder: A Collection of Maladjusted Essays
A memoir within a collection of essays, Adjustment Disorder recounts an Iraq War veteran’s origins, his deployment, and postwar adjustment. Raised by Baptist fundamentalists and homeschooled until the age of sixteen, the author had long decided on the military as an escape plan. Deployed to Baghdad in 2003, the author considers who he was before and after those experiences. From small town Connecticut to the Middle East, North Africa and New York, he explores the effects of going to war on the returning soldier—on one’s psyche, identity, and morality—and the toll on relationships with friends, family, and others.
