    “As good as any piece of literature can get” (Chicago Sun Times), Tim O’Brien’s The Things They Carried was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Critics Circle Award, and stands as perhaps the most acclaimed book about the Vietnam War. His other books include If I Die in a Combat Zone, Box Me Up and Ship Me Home, In the Lake of the Woods, and Going After Cacciato, winner of the 1979 National Book Award. Penned one scrap of paper at a time, Dad’s Maybe Book is a collection of O’Brien’s advice for the two young sons who might never get to know him in adulthood.
