Gurdin's novel is timely even though it takes place in 1968 after the assassinations of Martin Luther King, Jr., and Bobby Kennedy. The novel's protagonist must decide between resisting the draft to express his opposition to the war in Vietnam, and taking a graduate-school deferment. He rather chooses to take a job in Europe, where, like young people today, he must contemplate a moral course of action against the backdrop of an unpopular war.
