The Trion Syndrome, Tom Glenn says, came from his struggle to come to terms with the unspeakable things that happened during the years he served as a clandestine intelligence operative working under cover with soldiers and Marines in Vietnam. He questioned whether men who had demonstrated the kind of ferocity he had were even capable of love. He returned from Vietnam an emotional wreck, after living through the fall of Saigon and escaping under fire when the North Vietnamese were already in the streets of the city. He had all the classic symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Injury—panic attacks, flashbacks, nightmares, irrational rage. His marriage crumbled, and he was afraid he was going to lose his children, his sole reason for staying alive. He turned to helping others and writing. He resumed his study of German and, in his search for healing, sought the wisdom in Greek mythology. In the process he rediscovered the German author, Thomas Mann. Then Dave Bell, the protagonist of Trion, took him over. To find peace, he had to tell Bell’s story. Hence Trion. Learn more at www.the-trion-syndrome.com.
