Discount by Siaosi Tusitala

Siaosi Tusitala’s short, dialogue-heavy novel, Discount (CreateSpace, 210 pp., $15.95, paper), deals with a Navy Vietnam veteran and his struggles finding work and adjusting to life after he returns home from the war in 1969.


The author, who uses a pen name, says he has written this story “in hopes that it will encourage not only returning Veterans from our current wars; but also all of those that are suffering in less than desirable jobs.”
