Poetry/prose of the Vietnam War experience, praised by Daniel Berrigan.

About the Author:

Richard Currey has been praised for the emotional precision and riveting imagery of his lyrical prose. The London Sunday Times called Currey as "a dazzling writer, almost making you shield your eyes as you read... Currey achieves a stark immediacy that makes you wince." He is the author of four critically acclaimed works, the recipient of numerous awards, including two National Endowment for the Arts fellowships. In addition to Crossing Over, Currey is the author of a short-story collection, The Wars of Heaven, and two novels, Fatal Light and Lost Highway. Fatal Light was short-listed for the PEN/Hemingway Award for Best First Novel and won the Vietnam Veterans of America's Excellence in the Arts Award.
