    Description"Tim O'Brien is the best American writer of his generation." --"San Francisco Examiner" With more than two million copies in print, "The Things They Carried" is a classic work of American literature that has been changing minds and lives since it burst onto the literary scene. It is a groundbreaking meditation on war, memory, imagination, and the redemptive power of storytelling. "In the Lake of the Woods" is an unforgettable novel of love and mystery. When long-hidden secrets about his past come to light, John Wade--a Vietnam veteran and recent candidate for the U.S. Senate--retreats with his wife to a cabin in northern Minnesota. She mysteriously vanishes and several explanations, all of them disturbing, rise to the surface.
