Editorial Reviews

Review

“The best book I have ever read on men and war in our time.”

—John le Carré

“In the great line of Crane, Orwell, and Hemingway . . . Herr reaches an excruciating level of intensity . . . He seems to have brought to this book the ear of a musician and the eye of a painter . . . The premier war correspondence of Vietnam.”

The Washington Post

" . . . Dispatches puts the rest of us in the shade."
—Hunter S. Thompson

About the Author

Michael Herr was a novelist and war correspondent. Born in Lexington, Kentucky in 1940, he began reporting from Vietnam for Esquire in the 1960s, during the height of the war. He later chronicled those experiences in his memoir, Dispatches. He is the author of three other books, The Big Room, Walter Winchell, and Kubrick, and coauthor of the screenplays for Apocalypse Now and Full Metal Jacket. He died in 2016.

Robert Stone, a National Book Award winner, lives in New York City.
