Utterly devastating book about marriage, war, politics, hell, everything. O'Brien's descriptions of My Lai felt like a punch in the stomach, his analysis of a long-term relationship gone bad is pitch perfect, his writing throughout exquisite. This book is so impressive; I feel like it the best thing I have read in a long while.
