About This Item

Boston: Houghton Mifflin / Seymour Lawrence, 1990. First trade edition, following a signed edition issued by the Franklin Library; 8vo, pp. [14], 273, [1]; fine in a fine, first issue, unclipped dust jacket. This copy inscribed on the title page, "To John & Lorna, Best wishes, Tim O'Brien."

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 O’Brien, 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.
