Product description


‘A thrilling story that can be read and enjoyed simply as an adventure story but digs deeper than that.’ Irish Times

‘Calling Tim O’Brien a Vietnam War novelist is a bit like saying Joseph Conrad was a Polish guy who wrote some good sea tales.’ Esquire

‘The best novelist the Vietnam War has produced.’ Independent

‘O’Brien is the best American writer of his generation.’ San Francisco Examiner

About the Author

Tim O’Brien was born in Minnesota and served as a foot soldier in Vietnam from 1969 to 1970, and after graduate studies at Harvard worked as a reporter for the Washington Post. When ‘If I Die in a Combat Zone’ was published in 1973, it established him as one of the leading American writers of his generation, a status that was confirmed when ‘Going After Cacciato’ won the National Book Award for fiction.
