Summary
The Grass is a coming-of-age story about a boy from Minnesota who joins the services to fight in the Korean War after he is expelled from the University of Minnesota for standing up to racist (and political) tactics by the administration against their only black faculty member at the time. Zerby tackles the subject matter with aplomb, spotlighting the boy's sense of justice and fairness (through a teenager's eyes) while providing a bas relief of racial tension and heartless army bravado. Death is highlighted as stark and consistent; love - as the young man is torn between two, and eventually three women - provides both comic relief and necessary depth
