About the Author
TIM O'BRIEN received the 1979 National Book Award for Going After Cacciato. Among his other books are The Things They Carried, Pulitzer Finalist and a New York Times Book of the Century, and In the Lake of the Woods, winner of the James Fenimore Cooper Prize. He was awarded the Pritzker Literature Award for lifetime achievement in military writing in 2013.
"Winner of the National Book Award in fiction for 1979's Going After Cacciato, O'Brien uses his deft skill of wordplay throughout this latest book....Fans of parenting books, memoirs, and stories of Vietnam War veterans will find enjoyment in these heartfelt words."-- "Library Journal"
"Although O'Brien's strong anti-war feelings are prominent throughout, his principal interest is fatherhood--specifically, at becoming a father later in his life and realizing that he will miss so much of his sons' lives...A miscellany of paternal pride (and frustration) darkened by the author's increasing realizations of his mortality."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
