Editorial Reviews:
Review:

"'The Things They Carried'...is one of the finest books, fact or fiction, written about the Vietnam War."

Verlyn Klinkenborg, New York Times Book Review

Review:

"...O'Brien plays with the embattled terrain of a soldier's memory, with his embellishments of memories in conscious reconstructions--stories told, then corrected--to startling and intriguing effects in narrative and language."

Vince Passaro, Harper's, August 1999

Book Description: HOUGHTON MIFFLIN, United States, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 202 x 133 mm. Brand New Book. A classic work of American literature that has not stopped changing minds and lives since it burst onto the literary scene, The Things They Carried is a ground-breaking meditation on war, memory, imagination, and the redemptive power of storytelling. The Things They Carried depicts the men of Alpha Company: Jimmy Cross, Henry Dobbins, Rat Kiley, Mitchell Sanders, Norman Bowker, Kiowa, and the character Tim O Brien, who has survived his tour in Vietnam to become a father and writer at the age of forty-three. Taught everywhere--from high school classrooms to graduate seminars in creative writing--it has become required reading for any American and continues to challenge readers in their perceptions of fact and fiction, war and peace, courage and fear and longing. The Things They Carried won France s prestigious Prix du Meilleur Livre Etranger and the Chicago Tribune Heartland Prize; it was also a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award.
