Vietnam War Literature


The Things They Carried.
by [Vietnam War Literature] O'Brien, Tim.

Publisher Information:
Houghton Mifflin, Boston : 1990.

A Fine copy in a Fine, unclipped dust jacket. While this collection of stories involving a single platoon in Vietnam is referred to as a work of fiction it is difficult to determine where the line between fact and imagination begins and ends. "The Things They Carried" is considered one of the two best portrayals of the war experience in Vietnam along with Michael Herr's "Dispatches." "Things" is simply a tour-de-force of exquisite writing about the time, the place, and the men who experienced that particular conflict. If you were going to read only one book dealing with the Vietnam War experience,"The Things They Carried" should be that book.
