Body Shop BODY SHOP: Recuperating from Vietnam (Stein & Day, 1973)

First published book about American men wounded in Vietnam, all amputees at Letterman General Hospital in San Francisco. Each stump is attached to a name, a story, a brave heart.

Woody, young, blue-eyed, red-haired California man says, “I went to a concert a while ago. I was sitting on some steps, this chick was sitting below me. Everyone was stoned. She leaned back and hit her head against my false legs. She turned around, she couldn’t believe it. We really laughed!”
