THE THINGS THEY CARRIED Comes to United Solo
Fifty years after the Tet Offensive, O'Brien's book, The Things They Carried, remains a lyrical testimony to what the war in Vietnam was like day to day for the men who fought it. It captures a sense of time and place in a voice that is beautiful and courageous. In Jim Stowell's engaging personification of Tim O'Brien's witness to the reality of combat it's all there: memory, imagination, love, loss and the redemptive power of storytelling.
