    Having signed up for the US Army in the 1850s, aged barely 17, Thomas McNulty and his brother-in-arms, John Cole, go on to fight in the Indian wars and ultimately the Civil War. Orphans of terrible hardships themselves, despite the horrors they both see and are complicit in, they find these days to be vivid. Both an intensely poignant story of two men and the lives they are dealt and a fresh look at some of the most fateful years in America's past.

    Jack McNulty is a 'temporary gentleman', an Irishman whose commission in the British army in the Second World War was never made permanent. In 1957, in his lodgings in Accra, he sets out to write his story. He is an ordinary man, both petty and heroic, but he has seen extraordinary things. He has wandered the world - as a soldier, an engineer, a UN observer - following his childhood ambition to better himself.

    Hvordan lyder det, når et niogfirs år gammelt hjerte brister? Der vil nok ikke være meget andet end stilhed, og i hvert fald blot en ganske lille sprød lyd. Året er 1992, og Lillys elskede barnebarn, Bill, har begået selvmord efter at være vendt hjem fra Golfkrigens rædsler. Nu sidder den niogfirsårige dame og nedskriver tanker om sit liv, for hun har også besluttet at afslutte det.
