Publisher Comments:

“Tim OBrien is the best American writer of his generation.” —San Francisco Examiner

With more than two million copies in print, The Things They Carried is a classic work of American literature that has been changing minds and lives since it burst onto the literary scene. It is a groundbreaking meditation on war, memory, imagination, and the redemptive power of storytelling. In the Lake of the Woods is an unforgettable novel of love and mystery. When long-hidden secrets about his past come to light, John Wade—a Vietnam veteran and recent candidate for the U.S. Senate—retreats with his wife to a cabin in northern Minnesota. She mysteriously vanishes and several explanations, all of them disturbing, rise to the surface.

Synopsis:

Two bestselling novels from "one of his generation's most deservedly acclaimed authors." (Chicago Tribune)

Synopsis:

A classic, life-changing meditation on war, memory, imagination, and the redemptive power of storytelling, with more than two-million copies in print

Depicting the men of Alpha Company—Jimmy Cross, Henry Dobbins, Rat Kiley, Mitchell Sanders, Norman Bowker, Kiowa, and the character Tim OBrien, who survived his tour in Vietnam to become a father and writer at the age of forty-three—the stories in The Things They Carried opened our eyes to the nature of war in a way we will never forget. It is taught everywhere, from high school classrooms to graduate seminars in creative writing, and in the decades since its publication it has never failed to challenge our perceptions of fact and fiction, war and peace, and courage, longing, and fear.

Synopsis:

'
In Mrs. Dalloway, Virginia Woolf details Clarissa Dalloways preparations for a party of which she is to be hostess, exploring the hidden springs of thought and action in one day of a womans life. Paired here with A Room of Ones Own, a masterful and provocative essay on womens role in society, this beautiful hardcover edition will be a welcome addition to the library of any Woolf scholar or fan.
