Bitter Truth There are a lot of reasons not to read Kent Anderson s Night Dogs Aging Viet Nam War protestors dusting off old placards and tired slogans to recycle for the War in Ira will be infuriated with Anderson s laser focused skewering of the liberal mindset Those wishing to maintain a romantic view of an idyllic northwest paradise will risk having these illusions shattered by Anderson s Portland s mean streets of depravity and violence If you prefer neat little stories ending with the bad guys rightfully dispatched you ll find little redemption here And anyone with the slightest affection for dogs or kids will cringe in the raw reality of this unvarnished tale of a street cop s nightly grind in post Viet Nam America So while there are lots of reasons not to read Night Dogs you d be missing a powerful example of American fiction at its best a gut wrenching and emotionally draining dissection of pop culture cleverly and brutally disguised as a crime novelStreet cop Hanson is a uniue and tragic hero an Army Special Forces veteran from Viet Nam returning to test his well honed skills for survival and violence in Portland s worst neighborhoods Loosely autobiographical the two decades that have passed since the end of the war and the writing of Night Dogs have done little to blunt the ferocity and passion of Anderson s lean prose Far from Dirty Harry Anderson s stoic and cynical loner Hanson delivers his brand of street justice without theatrics he is simply the cop on his beat doing his job while doing his best to bury the daily horror show of his life with drugs alcohol and rough sex Non linear with little allegiance to a central plot the reader is led in stops and starts from the jungles of Viet Nam to the night shift in a Portland patrol car Make no mistake this is not a pleasant read Brutal and violent the dog lab is one of the most disturbing chapters of fiction I ve ever read Anderson pulls no punches and offers no apologies Night Dogs may shock you it may enrage you it may make you cry but it will also make you better understand and appreciate a period of American history many of us would just as soon forget
