Tim O'Brien - The Things They Carried (20th Anniversary Edition)

O’Brien’s collection of short fiction about men at war is as stunning and timely now as it was when it first appeared. Based on the author’s tour of duty in Vietnam, the stories are vivid and deeply affecting as they lay bare both the physical stress soldiers endure and the assorted emotional baggage—fear, shame, pride—that weighs them down.
