It’s 2007, Harry’s twenty-three and he has problems he can’t handle alone. The army considers him a risk. The press thinks he’s a brat. Girls like him because he’s a prince. He wishes he wasn’t. He hopes service in Afghanistan will help him solve that. Instead, deployment exposes vulnerability under his bad boy persona and results in a comic coming of age he definitely didn’t see coming. He’s always hated the media so he doesn’t know what to do when he falls for a reporter from CNN. It’s complicated by the fact that she’s disguised as a man to evade the Pentagon’s ban on women in front line positions. Nor does he anticipate making a gay best friend in a brother officer named Mustafa. And what’s his former nanny doing on the plane to Kabul? There’s also a warlord driving a Mercedes and a colonel who’d much rather be reading Shakespeare. Together they stumble upon buried trauma from Harry’s childhood. If he can learn how to cope with all that, he may find fulfillment he never dreamed was possible in being a prince.


Occasionally I have wished that, as with movies, comedy was considered a literature genre. This is one of those times. Honestly, I think that Mr. Kuhn has missed his calling and should be writing screenplays. Maybe then we could see some movies that were actually funny.

So a million years ago I had a personal blog. I don’t know what I talked about, nothing I guess. Whatever I was thinking about. But once in a blue moon I would post a book review.

One of the few I posted was about a book called Mrs. Queen Takes the Train. It’s not exactly a well-known book. Its cute, very British cover caught my eye, so I picked it up. Oh my goodness, I just loved it. I won’t go into detail here, I’ll re-post my original review in a couple of days.

One of the pleasant surprises that came from my reviewing the book was that I had a couple of interactions with author, William Kuhn. The first was when I asked a question about the book on his website, which he promptly (and thoroughly!) responded to. Another was a short conversation on Twitter where he re-posted my review and told me he liked my hat. I figured that was that.

To my complete surprise, it wasn’t. A couple of weeks ago I received an email from Mr. Kuhn asking me to read his new book, Prince Harry Boy to Man. And today I got my digital copy! I can’t wait to start reading first thing in the morning, and, of course, to let you all know what I think. Cheers!
