Poetry that precisely conjures images of the war in Vietnam by an award-winning author.

"The best writing we've had from the long war in Vietnam has been prose so far. Yusef Komunyakaa's Dien Cai Dau changes that."

–William Matthews

"So finely tuned are Komunyakaa's images, so faultless his vision, that the reader sees precisely what the poet recalls . . . A powerful must-read for those who have forgotten those days"


"Komunyakaa makes a major contribution to the body of literature grappling with Vietnam —a poetry that pierces the artificial border between moral and aesthetic engagement."
