David Nardi Releases RIPPED TO SHREDS
by Christina Mancuso - Aug 8, 2013

Closet hippie, staunchly-disciplined Roman Catholic, a soldier's soldier, David Nardi re-imagines the atmosphere of the Vietnam War and its era in American history. The main narrative will have readers seeing the war through the eyes of a young lieutenant in Ripped To Shreds. He calls it 'a tale of historical abandon'. This is well-realized and documented, as Nardi is a brilliant student of the chaos that accompanied a global paradigm shift in 1960s. His narrative is rounded off by lyrics and poetry, perhaps his way of showing the ambivalent heart of every thinking man who participated and matured in the events and cultural issues of that era.
