This is a novella and has the distinction of being both on the Internet as well as being published as a book. You may download it on www.ebooks.com or order the longer version as a conventional book.
It tells the story of eleven Australian Vietnam Veterans and one ex-member of the North Vietnamese Army who are thoroughly disenchanted by the way they have been treated since their return to civilian life and decide to take revenge. In effect a dirty dozen, suffering from the effects of Agent Orange and a whole heap of psychological disorders, they're a pretty hopeless bunch until they reluctantly recruit a woman to their ranks. It's funny, it's sad, serious, mad and an unexpected book. If you have a Vietnam Vet in your family, or you were unfortunate enough to have spent time in Vietnam yourself, whether Australian or American, you should probably read Smoky Joe's Cafe.
