6/11 Biloxi Blues
This Tuesday, June 11th, we will be reading “Biloxi Blues” by Neil Simon.
The story involves 20-year-old Eugene Morris Jerome from Brooklyn, who is drafted into the United States Army during World War II and is sent to Biloxi, Mississippi for basic training. Eugene learns to cope with fellow soldiers from all walks of life, falls in love, and loses his virginity under less than ideal circumstances, all while having to navigate around the eccentricities of his drill instructor.
