Richard Currey (Author)
DescriptionFirst published in 1980, Crossing Over is hybrid prose-poetry and flash fiction about one young man's journey through the Vietnam War. Adapted for the stage and praised by antiwar activist Daniel Berrigan, these vignettes from the war-torn jungles changed the way America saw the Vietnam Era. The material in Crossing Over formed the basis of Currey's 1988 novel Fatal Light, cited by Tim O'Brien as "one of the very best works of fiction to emerge from the Vietnam War."
