Synopsis:

About the Author

Philip Caputo was raised on the outskirts of Chicago. After college, he served with the Marines for three years, including sixteen months in Vietnam, and then spent six years as a foreign correspondent for the Chicago Tribune. He was held hostage in Beirut in 1973, learning only upon release of his shared 1972 Pulitzer Prize for reporting on election fraud in Chicago. Two years later, he was wounded in Beirut, and, during his convalescence, completed the manuscript for A Rumor of War, a Vietnam memoir that was published while Caputo was in Moscow, back on assignment for the Tribune. In 1977, he left the paper and turned to novels, of which he has written four, as well as another memoir (Means of Escape) and a collection of three novellas (Exiles). He lives in Connecticut with his wife, Leslie Blanchard Ware.
