"The best book to have been written about the Vietnam War" (The New York Times Book Review); an instant classic straight from the front lines. From its terrifying opening pages to its final eloquent words, Dispatches makes us see, in unforgettable and unflinching detail, the chaos and fervor of the war and the surreal insanity of life in that singular combat zone. Michael Herr’s unsparing, unorthodox retellings of the day-to-day events in Vietnam take on the force of poetry, rendering clarity from one of the most incomprehensible and nightmarish events of our time. Dispatches is among the most blistering and compassionate accounts of war in our literature.

âe~The best book I have ever read on men and war in our time.âe(tm) John Le Carré âe~Having read Dispatches, it is difficult to convey the impact of total experience as all the facades of patriotism, heroism and the whole colossal fraud of American intervention fall away to the bare bones of fear, war and deathâe(tm) William S. Burroughs âe~Splendid . . . he brings alive the terror of combat in a way that rivals All Quiet on the Western Frontâe(tm) Tom Wolfe âe~In the great line of Crane, Orwell and Hemingway . . . he seems to have brought to this book the ear of a musician and the eye of a painter, Frank Zappa and Francis Baconâe(tm) Washington Post âe~We have all spent ten years trying to explain what happened to our heads and our lives in the decade we finally survived âe" but Michael Herrâe(tm)s Dispatches puts all the rest of us in the shadeâe(tm) Hunter S. Thompson âe~If it were only unconventional journalism, it would stand with the best there is âe" but it's a good deal more than that . . . I believe it may be the best personal journal about war, about any war, that any writer has ever accomplishedâe(tm) Robert Stone

Cindy Chupack takes a hilarious look at love, dating, and not dating in this witty, truthful and utterly charming book. Tackling topics such as "relationship reruns" (a sobering stage when you realize that the men you meet are basically repeats of the men you've already dated) and "relocationships" (the kind of relationship hat necessitates moving to a place where you would never consider living), Dispatches from the Dating Front Lines is as reassuring as that late-night post-date phone call to a best friend. It says: you may be single, but you are not alone. Praise for The Between Boyfriends Book: A Collection of Cautiously Hopeful Essays "Oh, how I love this book! I laughed out loud again and again. It hits such an intimate and true chord, it's painful actually, how insightful Cindy Chupack is. Every woman who's been through the dating miasma must read it." - Julia Sweeney "Cindy Chupack is funny about single. Very funny. And smart. And sympathetic. And empathetic. And helpful. And the stories in this book are really horrible in a great way." - Delia Ephron
