Item #28573 The Things They Carried. Vietnam War Literature, Tim O'Brien.

The Things They Carried.

Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1990. First Printing of the First Edition. A Fine copy in a Fine, unclipped dust jacket. This copy is signed by O'Brien. 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. Item #28573
