This collection of seven essays, like the carefully linked collection of vignettes within Tim O'Brien's most popular book The Things They Carried, contains multiple critical and biographical angles with recurring threads of life events, themes, characters, creative techniques, and references to all of O'Brien's books. Grounded in through research, Herzog's work illustrates how O'Brien merges his life experiences with his creative production; he rarely misses an opportunity to introduce these critical life events into his writing.

Tobey C. Herzog, a Vietnam Veteran, is an Emeritus Professor of English and the Emeritus Anne and Andrew T. Ford Chair in the Liberal Arts, Wabash College. He has authored three books on American narratives on the Vietnam experience: Vietnam War Stories: Innocence Lost; Tim O'Brien; and Writing Vietnam, Writing Life.
