Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fiction. "In this fine book, Rick Christman carries me back to Vietnam as few writers can. With his tight, compact prose, each paragraph stripped to essentials, Christman offers vivid and memorable snapshots of that horrifying piece of history--the ghouls, the whores, the decadence, the gallows humor, the redeeming moments of human courage and human kindness. This is a book that makes me remember"--Tim O'Brien, author of Going After Cacciato.
