Title: Things They Carried

\"'The Things They Carried' is a thrilling and beautiful distillation of everything that has been thought, felt, or said about the Vietnam war and its long afterburn. A heartbreaking and healing masterpiece; time will make it a classic.\"MICHAEL HERR, author of 'Dispatches' \"O'Brien writes superbly. One of the best war books of this century, an unflinching attempt to illuminate both its obscene physical brutality and the terrible mental overload.\"GUARDIAN \"This marvellous book...there are few novels of this brilliant kind. Here every sentence proclaims that war does not so much contain horrors as is horror itself.\"RUTH RENDELL, 'Sunday Telegraph' \"The war story in O'Brien's hands is brilliant, extraordinarily sophisticated and moving, restless, lucid and decidedly slippery.\"SUNDAY TIMES \"Essential... he captures the war's pulsating rhythms and nerve-racking dangers... a stunning performance. The overall effect of these original tales is devastating.\"NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW
