    Hardcover Description:

    "I love the way Wilfred recycles the bodies. That’s fabulous stuff with a direct line to Heller’s Catch-22 and perfectly captures the insanity of the Vietnam War." Richard Peabody, co-editor of Gargoyle Magazine Counting bodies in Vietnam. In this earthy war/peace novel, comedy frames grim pictures of war. Morris weaves combat, a love affair, and military satire into a story that is by turns terrifying, gruesome, and mad, and one acted by a memorable cast of characters—grunts and hookers, Vietcong soldiers and spies, heroes and inane officers. It begins on a huge base in the Central Highlands in 1967 where Lieutenant Wilfred Carmenghetti falls in love with Can and smuggles her to a forward firebase. In the field he and his platoon win stunning victories, but spies plot his death, Vietcong soldiers attack the platoon, and Can leaves him. What follows is a surprising and fanciful comedic ending. Cologne No. 10 For Men is a book to make us fear, weep, laugh, and remember.
