" To call "Going After Cacciato" a novel about war is like calling "Moby Dick" a novel about whales." So wrote "The New York Times" of Tim O'Brein's now classic novel of Vietnam. Winner of the 1979 National Book Award, "Going After Cacciato" captures the peculiar blend of horror and hallucinatory comedy that marked this the strangest of wars. Reality and fantasy merge in this fictional account of one private's sudden discussion to lay down his rifle and begin a quixotic journey from the of Indochina to the streets of Paris. Will Cacciato make it all the way? Or will he be yet another casualty of a conflict that seems to have no end? In its memorable evocation of men both fleeing and meeting the demands of the battle, "Going After Cacciato" stands as much more than just a great war novel. Ultimately it's about the forces of fear and heroism that do battle in the hearts of us all.
