Description
In The Most Important Thing, author David Gross parlays his own father’s life history into a moving fictional narrative about a young man’s journey from a Kentucky rural homestead to life as a soldier in the Korean War. After Bradley Gross decides to enlist in the U.S. Army at the tender age of eighteen, the benefits of his decision seem endless—seeing the world, having grand adventures, and receiving bigger paychecks. However, it’s only amidst the danger, adventure, and perils of battle that he seeks, and finds, what is truly the most important thing.
About the author
David Gross was born in 1954 near Austin, Indiana, to Bradley and Josephine Gross. Bradley Gross, a Korean War veteran, is the hero of The Most Important Thing. David and his two brothers, Mike and Dennis, spent their youth playing basketball, riding bikes, camping, and swapping stories in rustic Indiana. David is a proud and honorably discharged veteran of the United States Air Force. The Most Important Thing salutes the Korean veterans and all who have shared the military experience. David has four children: Sebrena, Julian, Will, and Kayleigh. David’s greatest professional interest is writing. History is another passion of his. At the University of South Florida David received his BA in history and was selected to Phi Alpha Theta, the honorary history fraternity. David’s writings explore history, adventure, and human relationships. While attending Texas Wesleyan University School of Law School, David served as the articles editor for the Texas Wesleyan Law Review. His note and comment on eyewitness testimony, “The Unfortunate Faith,” has been cited in over thirty scholarly journals, books, and legal textbooks. These include the Federal Courts Law Review, Notre Dame Law Review, Fordham Law Review, and the Yale Law Review. This is David’s first book, a monument to his father, a memoir of his own military experience, and a historical tale of roughing it in Korea. David is currently working on a second book about growing up in the 1960s and his experience in Vietnam tentatively titled The Year of the Dragon.
