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 a lively discussion of the book led by librarian Diane Rice.
