“Told in lyrical and vivid style that is at times dazzling in its specificity and intensity,
Z.O.S. A Memoir traces Kay Merkel Boruff's arduous path through a lifelong grieving
process spent coming to terms not only with the death of her husband but also with the
spiritual demons she lived with as a younger woman. This account fills a gap in the story
of our national experience in Viet Nam.”
—C.W. Smith author of Steplings, Buffalo Nickel, and Understanding Women.
