Product description

Review

‘To call “Going After Cacciato” a novel about war is like calling Moby-Dick a novel about whales. O’Brien’s writing is crisp, authentic and grimly ironic … a major achievement’ New York Times Book Review

‘Not only the best novel about the Vietnam War, but among the finest works of fiction in contemporary American literature’ Philip Caputo, Esquire

‘His irony recalls that of Stendhal, his landscapes have the breadth and scope of Tolstoy’s, and the essential American innocence of his vision deserves to stand beside that of Stephen Crane’ National Book Award citation

From the Inside Flap

"To call Going After Cacciato a novel about war is like calling Moby-Dick a novel about whales."
So wrote the "New York Times of Tim O'Brien's now classic novel of Vietnam. Winner of the 1979 National Book Award, Going After Cacciato captures the peculiar mixture of horror and hallucination that marked this strangest of wars.
In a blend of reality and fantasy, this novel tells the story of a young soldier who one day lays down his rifle and sets off on a quixotic journey from the jungles of Indochina to the streets of Paris. In its memorable evocation of men both fleeing from and meeting the demands of battle, Going After Cacciato stands as much more than just a great war novel. Ultimately it's about the forces of fear and heroism that do battle in the hearts of us all. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
