"In ONCE YOU GO BACK, Martin turns inward to create a dark and dreamlike (self-)portrayal of the sexual coming of age of a boy acutely aware that he doesn't fit the roughneck masculine mold into which his Southern military hometown forces its sons."
From the Publisher
Editors Note Douglas A. Martin's distinctive American voice finds its stride in his new semi-autobiographical novel. Once You Go Back describes growing up in a strained working-class household transplanted to the South. In his elliptical and evocative style, Martin expresses the curiosity of children on the verge of becoming sexual, and their confusion in the midst of family violence.
