Senator Max Cleland talked about his autobiography Strong at the Broken Places, published by Longstreet Press. This is a new, updated edition of a memoir he wrote in 1980, describing his experiences in combat during the Vietnam war, in which he lost both legs and an arm. The memoir also describes his rehabilitation and recovery. When he wrote the original memoir, he thought it was his own grenade that had caused his injuries, but the new memoir tells the story of a revelation that changed his life - the discovery 31 years after the accident that the grenade was not his own. As he explains in the program, the title of his book comes from a Hemingway novel. close
