Barnes & Noble Discover Great New Writers For almost 30 years now, scores of novels have been published annually about America's involvement in the Vietnam War. It's enough to make you wonder what more is there to say. Yet occasionally a finely tuned and underexplored story hovers above the rest.

It's enough to make you wonder what more is there to say. Yet occasionally a finely tuned and underexplored story hovers above the rest. Beverly Gologorsky's The Things We Do to Make it Home is a brilliant exploration of how the war affected women at home. Both the prose and the content bring to mind Robert Olen Butler's debut novel, The Alleys of Eden, and the stories in Tim O'Brien's The Things They Carried. Simple in style, this invitingly painful debut marks not only the entrance of a promising new voice in fiction but the addition of a bold female voice to the annals of male-dominated Vietnam literature. Gologorksy explains why the public remains so fascinated with Vietnam. "There's no closure," she says. "Writers are trying to make sense of a war that didn't, and never will, make sense." In the late '60s, Gologorsky was intensely involved with the antiwar and women's movements. She worked for several radical publications, such as Viet Report and Leviathan, which catapulted her onto the front lines of many heated social and political causes. Hearing people constantly talk about ending a war was very empowering for Gologorsky, and before long she was playing a major part in demonstrations like the Columbia strike of 1968. "It wasn't until I finished this book," she says, "that I acknowledged it as being my book about the war." And it took seven years to finish. As a single mother employed full-time for a legal publisher, Gologorskywrote for two hours every morning before her daughter woke up and before she had to go to work. "It wasn't easy to write," she admits. "I found myself wanting to get up after ten minutes almost every day. But the schedule of my life forced me to sit there and push through. In my case, resistance was healthy."

The Things We Do to Make It Home - used book

1973, ISBN: 1583228845

ID: 6019355

In the decades since the end of the Vietnam War, American writers of all stripes have staked out that cataclysmic conflict as a subject for literature. Tim O'Brien, Michael Herr, Ron Kovic, David Rabe--the list of authors who have rendered men and war is long and impressive; the fact that there's nary a woman among them is perhaps not surprising, as combat is, for the most part, a male activity. But men weren't the only ones affected by Vietnam--for every soldier in a rice paddy, there was a mother, a sister, a lover back home; when their men came back changed by the experience of war, life changed for the women, as well. In her impressive debut novel, Beverly Gologorsky skillfully depicts the lives of three returned veterans and the women who love them. The story begins in 1973, shortly after Rooster, Frankie, Nick, Sean, Rod, and Jason return home from Vietnam, and it's obvious something's not quite right. Waiting for his girlfriend, Millie, to dress for a party, Rooster can't sit still. He counts twenty-two steps from the bedroom door to the end of the living room.... She doesn't like him barging in while she's dressing. She says that he's got to give her some privacy. Soon there'll be thunder, lightning. He begins snapping his fingers. Twenty-two steps. He turns, fixes his eyes on the door. Twenty-two steps. Hey, baby, anchors need to be close to their boats.
