From the Back Cover:

This remarkable new novel from the National Book Award-winning author of 'Going After Cacciato' and 'The Things They Carried' combines the power of the finest Vietnam fiction with the tension of a many-layered mystery. It begins in a remote lakeside cabin deep in the Minnesota forests, where Kathy Wade is comforting her husband John, an ambitious politician, after a devastating electoral defeat. Then one night she vanishes, and gradually the search for Kathy becomes a voyage into the darkest corners of John Wade’s life, a life of deception and deceit – the life of a man able to escape everything but the chains of his darkest secret.

“A compelling mystery … Tim O’Brien, one of his generation’s most deservedly acclaimed authors, has written a perceptive, engaging and troubling novel, full of powerful prose … challenging and provocative.”
CHICAGO TRIBUNE

“Gracefully written and as gripping as a thriller … O’Brien makes the hunt a thrilling pursuit.”
WALL STREET JOURNAL

“Striking, telling, deeply unsettling. A novel about the moral effects of suppressing a true war story, about the unforgivable uses of history, about what happens when you try to pretend that history no longer exists.”
NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

“Perhaps the best writer of fiction about Vietnam. O’Brien’s clean, incantatory prose always hovers on the edge of dream, and his speciality is that twilight zone of chimeras and fears and fantasies where nobody knows what’s true and what is not.”
TIME

“Hauntingly poignant … sheer brilliance. Only a master can navigate as compellingly as O’Brien.”
MIAMI HERALD

About the Author:

Tim O’Brien was born in Minnesota and graduated from Macalester College in St Paul. He established himself as one of the leading writers of his generation in 1973 when he published ‘If I Die In A Combat Zone’, the compelling account of his own tour of duty in Vietnam and is widely regarded as the finest novelist the Vietnam War has produced.
