Published in 1990 to vast critical acclaim, The Things They Carried has sold well over two million copies worldwide and was a finalist for both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award. More recently, the book was included among Amazon.com’s “List of 100 Books to Read in a Lifetime” and was credited as the inspiration for a National Veterans Art Museum exhibition of the same name in Chicago. The book is part memoir, part fiction. Written with the help of a National Endowment for the Arts creative writing fellowship, it’s a “marvel of storytelling which matters not only to the reader interested in Vietnam but to anyone interested in the craft of writing.” – New York Times.
