Fallen Angels: For Further Reference Fallen Angels: Overview The sole support of his family, seventeen-year-old Richard Perry puts aside his dreams of college and a writing career: He has neither the money for clothes nor the books and supplies his dreams require. Richie chooses the army as a way out of Harlem and a way to fulfill his responsibility to his mother and little brother, Kenny. Although Richie has a medical "profile"— a knee injury gained while playing basketball during basic training— his medical records are misplaced and he is sent to Vietnam and into active combat. His account of this year near the end of the war, the friends he makes, the boredom endured, and his terror of combat and death, provide readers with a realistic picture of the Vietnam conflict and the horror of war in general. Fallen Angels: About the Author Walter Dean Myers was born August 12, 1934, in Martinsburg, West Virginia. Myers' mother died while he was an infant, and soon afterwards, Florence and Herbert Dean took the young Myers and two of his sisters to raise as their own. The Deans moved to Harlem when he was three years old, and Myers lived there through his young adult years. Although the Deans were poor, Myers writes that he never experienced hunger or cold while growing up. He felt the unfairness of life, however, when he realized there was no money to send him to college. Myers Fallen Angels 1
