A husband and father of three adult children and two monster Plott Hounds, Kurt Brindley is a retired sailor who lives in Southern Pennsylvania in a house on top of a windy and rolling hill. He traveled much of the world while serving in the navy and, aye, he’s got some stories to tell…

Whiles serving in the navy, Kurt earned an undergraduate degree in English from the University of Maryland and a graduate degree in Human Relations from the University of Oklahoma.

In 1998, he took a hiatus from his regular navy duties as a navy telecommunications specialist to attend the U. S. military’s Defense Equal Opportunity Management Institute. The institute is little known to most but is internationally renowned to those in the human relations field.

Hi Marshall. Thank you for the question. I apologize for my slow response.

You seem a man concerned for the human spirit, especially one in need, based upon what I've seen from your reading list and preferences; therefore, I would recommend the novel, The Sea Trials of an Unfortunate Sailor.

Thank you again for your interest.
Let's stay in touch.

Didn’t quite see it from the movie version…

But after reading the book, I realize The Graduate is essentially a continuation of The Catcher in the Rye. In other words, Holden Canfield post-collegiate angst as channeled through Benjamin Braddock.
