Synopsis: [Read by Ray Porter]
Sardonic, searing, seductive, and surreal, the award-winning Meditations in Green is regarded by many as the best novel of the Vietnam War. It is a kaleidoscopic collage that whirls about an indelible array of images and characters: perverted Winky, who opted for the army to stay off of welfare; eccentric Payne, who's obsessed with the film he's making of the war; and bucolic Claypool, who's irrevocably doomed to a fate worse than death, just to mention a few.
And floating at the center of this psychedelic spin is Specialist 4 James Griffin. In country, Griffin studies the jungle of carpet-bomb photos as he fights desperately to keep his grip on reality. And battling addiction stateside after his tour, he studies the green of household plants as he struggles mightily to regain his sanity. With mesmerizing action and Joycean interior monologues, Stephen Wright has created a book that is as much an homage to the darkness of war as it is a testament to the transcendence of art.
From the Publisher: Called "brilliant" by The New York Times Book Review, this is a shocking and bitterly funny look at the dark side of Vietnam unknown to those back home, but all too familiar to every American in country.
The subject of extraordinary critical acclaim, this wonderfully descriptive novel by the author of Going Native brings us Vietnam from the point of view of a soldier very personally affected by the horrors of jungle war. Spec. 4 James Griffin may have left Vietnam, but Vietnam will never leave him. And although the war changed him from a boy into a living kaleidoscope of terror, he nonetheless is driven to relive it endlessly, doing battle with his haunting memories of a brutal war...even at the risk of losing his health, his sanity...and his very soul.
"It has overwhelming impact--the impact of an experience so devastating that words can hardly contain it."--The New York Times Book Review
"Perhaps the best that any fiction about this war has offered."--Newsweek
