The Things They Carried
The million-copy bestseller that redefined the way the world saw war.
One of the ten books – novels, memoirs and one very unusual biography – that make up our Matchbook Classics' series, a stunningly redesigned collection of some of the best loved titles on our backlist. The Things They Carried is the definitive account of what it was like being on the ground in Vietnam. But while that devastating conflict is central to the book, it is not simply about war. It is a book about memory, imagination, and the redemptive power of storytelling. It is also about the human heart – about the terrible weight of those things we carry through our lives.
