" 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.
