The Vietnam War might seem long ago, but it continues to color how Americans talk about national trauma. Richard Currey's novel, Fatal Light, gives voice to trauma—in every sense of the word. In it, a medic from West Virginia goes to the jungles of Vietnam and back again, bringing memories of the horrors he saw there home. It's a story about damaged people and personal renewal. Join noted Idaho author Alan Heathcock for discussions of Currey's novel at the Caldwell Public Library Wednesday, March 4, and at the Ada Community Library-Victory Branch Tuesday, March 10.
