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.

Reviews

'[A] stirring blend of memoir, letters to his young sons, and meditations on the humbling nature of parenthood...It's a work that's the spiritual inheritor of John Steinbeck's Travels With Charley and Kurt Vonnegut's A Man Without a Country. [O'Brien] takes absolutism to task, finds qualifications for his own pacifism and considers the paradox of a moral society that allows for forever war' Time Magazine

'O'Brien uses his deft skill of wordplay throughout this latest book...Fans of parenting books, memoirs, and stories of Vietnam War veterans will find enjoyment in these heartfelt words' Library Journal
