FIRST PRINTING. The critically revered, National Book Award-winning author's stunning and unforgettable book of Vietnam-based short stories. "The Things They Carried" has the cumulative power and unity of a novel, with recurring characters and interwoven strands of plot and theme. Each chapter flows into the next. Each story echoes off other stories. And on a third level, this amazing book is bound together by Tim O'Brien's own voice and character-as a twenty-three-year-old foot soldier and as a forty-three-year-old writer recreating that experience. Though Vietnam is central to "The Things They Carried," this is not simply a book about war. It is a book about the human heart, about the terrible weight of those things all of us carry through our lives." 22 short stories. 273 pages. Minor shelf rubbing to DJ cover. LF

Fine in a Near Fine dustjacket. Black boards quarterbound in black cloth. Both the spine and the front panel are stamped in gilt. Octavo. Red endpapers. 273pps. First edition, first printing. An excellent, collector's-quality copy: clean, tight, square, and bright. All tips are sharp. The textblock is immaculate; no reading wear and no previous ownership markings. The dustjacket, glossy in a new mylar sleeve, is mildly rubbed with a couple of crinkles. As is common with the dustjacket, the light-sensitive red ink of the spine-panel is slightly faded. The original price (19.95) is intact. "Depicts the men of Alpha Company: Jimmy Cross, Henry Dobbins, Rat Kiley, Mitchell Sanders, Norman Bowker, Kiowa, and of course, the character Tim O'Brien who has survived his tour in Vietnam to become a father and writer at the age of forty-three. They battle the enemy (or maybe more the idea of the enemy), and occasionally each other. In their relationships we see their isolation and loneliness, their rage and fear. They miss their families, their girlfriends and buddies; they miss the lives they left back home. Yet they find sympathy and kindness for strangers (the old man who leads them unscathed through the mine field, the girl who grieves while she dances), and love for each other, because in Vietnam they are the only family they have. We hear the voices of the men and build images upon their dialogue. The way they tell stories about others, we hear them telling stories about themselves." Purchase with confidence: all books, gradings, and descriptions are rendered the care of a genuine bibliophile. Satisfaction guaranteed or all costs you've incurred will be promptly refunded.
