About this title


In Once Upon a Time in Vietnam, winner of the 2010 Pearl Poetry Prize, Jerry Neren has penned a cautionary tale for the twenty-first century. Before our recent military adventures in the Middle East, there was Vietnam--the longest and most futile war in American history. Taking us back to that ''fungal fairyland,'' Neren follows an idealistic young man fresh out of college into combat where so much is lost to him--not only his life-long friend and brother-in-arms, but his sense of reality and purpose, and ultimately, his mind. Written in verse as lyrical as it is unflinching, Once Upon a Time in Vietnam is an unforgettable tale of the suffering inflicted by the unseen wounds of war.

About the Author:

Jerry Neren grew up in St. Paul, graduated from the University of Minnesota, and thereafter served in the United States Armed Forces. He is the recipient of numerous awards in poetry including The Loft Literary Center's Mentor Series and International Residency competition awards. Individual poems of his have been published in books, anthologies, and literary journals. In addition, he is a guest lecturer, presenter, and teacher of poetry, and has been a judge in poetry competitions. Once Upon A Time In Vietnam is his first full-length book of poems.
