Read in April, 1987

Being "unstuck in time" has got to be the greatest metaphor for PTSD in all of fiction, and who can ever forget "so it goes" and that eerie last line: "Po tee weet." This anti-war classic is too bleak to be one of my lifetime favorites, but that I remember it so well after 20 years proves just how well done it is.
