The purpose of the dinner—including Nick and Carter, Mike and his husband Greg, along with Robert Evans and his husband Henry Winters—is to tape record Nick’s recollection of the events around Pearl Harbor Day in 1941, fifty years earlier. This is a critical moment, and one alluded to many times over the course of the Nick & Carter series; but we’ve never heard the story.
As you can imagine, it’s filled with emotion, reminding us of a time when war could be a good fight, one for which young men would line up to enlist. It depicts an America hard for my children to recognize.
As I’ve said before, Nick & Carter are like fictional parents to me—the same generation as my parents, whose young lives were disrupted by the outbreak of World War II, and who were married four years later, within days of the bombing of Nagasaki and Hiroshima. Butterfield fills in the gaps in the backstory that preceded Nick meeting Carter, even as they and their friends, all in their sixties and seventies now, reminisce about a time that changed all of their lives.
In this unreal holiday season (which, because of my many blessings, is still a happy time), these fictional men seem even more real to me. I cherish these stories, and their author’s big heart and love-filed imagination. One more holiday to go. Thanks, Frank.
