 (Harvey Mendelson)

In 1968, R.M. Ryan was an American trying to get out of the draft. He ended up in Germany working with the U.S. military police - away from the front lines in Vietnam but still embroiled in violence. Ryan tells his story in his autobiographical novel, "There's A Man With a Gun Over There." We talk to the author and poet about his wartime experience and the writing that emerged from it.

Guests:

R.M. Ryan, poet and author; author of "There's a Man with a Gun Over There"
