The Midwest Book Review
Heroism is never what it’s cracked up to be. “Diving for Carlos; Or, Heroes’ Welcome Blues” follows Vietnam veteran Hector Cruz as he returns home and finds that his return came with a whimper more than a parade. Through meeting with his family and other unusual characters, “Diving for Carlos” is an intriguing exploration of what many veterans feel on their return to the real world.
