The Things They Carried

The Things They Carried

Tim O’Brien

What We Say: A series of original short stories about the Vietnam War, The Things They Carried has the accumulative authority of a novel, with recurring characters and intertwined plots. While Vietnam is central, it is not just a book about war, it is also about the trauma that follows.

What They Say: “O'Brien captures the war's pulsating rhythms and nerve-racking dangers... The overall effect of these original tales is devastating” – New York Times

Available on, Waterstones, Barnes & Noble and Amazon
