The Things They Carried
Boston, Houghton, 1990. A collection of related stories that is a meditation on war and death, and on the place that storytelling has in bringing these ultimately unfathomable experiences within our grasp. Three decades after its first publication, this is by consensus one of the best, if not the best, work of fiction to come out of the Vietnam war. Signed by the author. Production flaw (shallow horizontal ridge) to front board, thus near fine in a fine, first issue dust jacket (which means the lettering is offcenter on the spine). [#033920] SOLD
