Farrar Straus Giroux, 1986. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good. First edition. Top edge lightly foxed. 1986 Hard Cover. 209, [3] pp. 8vo. "This novel focuses on Paco Sullivan, the lone survivor of a massacre in Vietnam, who travels back to the United States, becomes a dishwasher in a short-order restaurant, and is haunted by the ghosts of the men killed in battle." "Lone survivor of a Viet Cong night attack that wipes out the 90-plus men of Alpha Company, Paco Sullivan returns to civilian life after much time spent in military hospitals. Narrated by a nameless dead soldier from Alpha Company, this intense, vividly written tale interweaves Paco's infantry days in Vietnam with his Valium- and Librium-soothed afterlife as a dishwasher in a smalltown cafe. This second novel by the author of the critically acclaimed Close Quarters is likewise a very frightening, yet wondrously rendered tale of violent extremes of human behavior." -- Library Journal
