The Things They Carried (1990) • Tim O’Brien
In this, O’Brien’s second work of fiction about Vietnam, his unique artistic vision is again clearly demonstrated. Neither a novel nor a short story collection, it is an arc of fictional episodes, taking place in the childhoods of its characters, in the jungles of Vietnam and back home in America two decades later. Free. No sign-up is needed.
