Now The Drum of War by Robert Roper ARC hardcopy from Walker PublishingI don't know what possessed me to ask for non-fiction and I generally dislike books about war. I mean books that glorify it of course, not personal war stories per se which I actually enjoy. But I love Walt Whitman and this book is based on the correspondence between him, his mother and his brothers. I'd like to know what kind of person his mother was that he turned out so well. It has to be fascinating.
