Summary
Jack McNulty is a "temporary gentleman" -- an Irishman whose commission in the British army in World War II was never permanent. Sitting in his lodgings in Accra, Ghana, in 1957, Jack's writing his life story. A lifetime of war and travel -- as a soldier in World War II, an engineer, a UN observer -- has brought him to this point. But the memory weighing heaviest on his heart is that of beautiful Mai Kirwan, and their tempestuous, heartbreaking marriage
