Publisher Description

In 1980, Richard Currey published Crossing Over to wide critical acclaim. Best described as flash fiction, Crossing Over is hybrid prose-poetry about one young man's journey through the Vietnam War. Adapted for the stage, and praised by antiwar activist Daniel Berrigan, these vignettes from the war-torn jungles changed the way America thought about the Vietnam Era.Crossing Over has long been regarded as one of the Vietnam Era's most evocative literary works. Cited by Library Journal as a "Best of the Small Presses," the prose poems and vignettes of Crossing Over formed the basis of Currey's 1988 novel Fatal Light, cited by Tim O'Brien as "one of the very best works of fiction to emerge from the Vietnam War."
