Lt. Frank Loveless is an anti-hero and self-centered jerk. A craven
coward and womanizer, he always lands on his feet and comes out of every
situation, no matter how dire, being awarded yet another metal and honor.
Accompany him in his combat adventures – or misadventures – is this novel
that’s unlike other sober fiction or serious memoirs about the Vietnam
Although it revolves around a serious war, this story doesn’t reveal a
deep message of good vs. evil or make a mature man out of the main
character. It portrays how a self-centered screwball is thrown into the
jungles of war, surrounded by blood and gore, and yet survives unscathed
time after time due to cowardice and incredible luck.
Frank Loveless’ inexplicable ability to bed any woman he wants often lands
him in hot water – like getting his orders switched from a cushy desk job
to infantry grunt. Yet he somehow continues to come out on top, being
awarded medals and accolades and being recognized by no less than the
President. Follow Frank Loveless and his service in the Vietnam conflict
as a 2nd Lieutenant in Jim Boersema’s novel – Loveless in the Nam.
“An engagingly flawed protagonist and a grounded sense of reality make
Boersema’s novel a smooth, fitfully thoughtful entertainment.” – Kirkus
Loveless in the Nam is available in both print and ebook formats.
