Description As Good As Can Be by William A. Glass

‘As Good As Can Be’ is a novel about the wayward son of an alcoholic army officer. As his dysfunctional family moves from one military base to the next, Dave Knight develops a give-a-damn attitude that goes well with his ironic sense of humor. In high school he joins other delinquents in a series of escapades, some dangerous, others funny, and a few that would be worthy of jail time should the troublemakers be caught. After barely graduating Dave gets drafted into the army and sent to guard a nuclear weapons depot in Korea. There he runs afoul of his sergeant and must scramble to avoid dishonorable discharge. ‘As Good As Can Be’ draws on the author's experiences growing up in an out-of-control military family during the 1950's and his own military experience.

Advance Praise As Good As Can Be by William A. Glass

“A sweeping family saga that takes you into the world of a military family. A great read.” “William’s book flows magically, I had a stack of papers to grade one night but thought I would read a chapter before I started. Next thing I knew it was 2:00 am and I hadn’t graded anything!”

Glass My take: This is a coming of age story during the 50's and 60's. The main character is Dave who has an alcoholic father who is in the army and a mother who is ill but we don't know with what. Being military the family moves quite frequently and we are along for the ride. Dave has brothers and sisters who are fighting with each other like a lot of siblings do. Dave struggles in school but loves to read. When he is drafted his father pulls some strings and has him stationed in Korea instead of Vietnam. The story is told with some humor and was enjoyable to read and I would recommend it to almost anyone. I received a review copy of this book from Virtual Author Book Tours and was not required to write a positive review.

  1. Mindy, thanks for reviewing my novel. It's great that you picked up on the humor. In most cases it was rather subtle.

    Best wishes,

    Bill Glass
