Description

"The best American writer of his generation." -- San Francisco Examiner A New York Times Book of the Century A Pulitzer Prize Finalist A National Book Critics' Circle Award Finalist Winner of the Prix du Meilleur Livre Etranger (France) Winner of the Chicago Tribune Heartland Prize Now with over two million copies in print, The Things They Carried is a classic work of American literature that has not stopped changing minds and lives since it burst onto the literary scene. Itis a ground-breaking meditation on war, memory, imagination, and the redemptive power of storytelling. "The Things They Carried is as good as any piece of literature can get." -- Chicago Sun-Times "This is writing so powerful that it steals your breath. ... The Things They Carried is about more than war, of course. It is about the human heart and emotional baggage and loyalty and love. It is about the difference between 'truth' and 'reality.' It is about death--and life."-- Milwaukee Journal "Rendered with an evocative, quiet precision, not equaled in the imaginative literature of the American war in Vietnam." -- Washington Post "You've got to read this book... In a world filled too often with numbness, or shifting values, these stories shine in a strange and opposite direction, moving against the flow, illuminating life's wonder, life's tenuousness, life's importance." -- Dallas Morning News "A book so searing and immediate you can almost hear the choppers in the background. . . This is prose headed for the nerve center of what was Vietnam." -- The Boston Globe "[An] ultimate, indelible image of war in our time, and in time to come." -- Los Angeles Times Tim O'Brien received the 1979 National Book Award for Going After Cacciato . Among his other books are In the Lake of the Woods , Tomcat in Love , If I Die in a Combat Zone , and July, July .
