"For Rouenna is about everything: war and remembrance, how we invent our 'selves' and why; why we kill ourselves--or live. I was dazzled by this book."
--The Washington Post Book World

"After my first book was published," the narrator of this haunting novel tells us, "I received some letters." Among them is one from a Rouenna Zycinski, asking to meet.Though fascinated by the stories Rouenna tells about her life as a combat nurse in Vietnam, the narrator flatly declines her request that they collaborate on a memoir. Later, however, in the aftermath of Rouenna's shocking death, she is compelled to write about her friend--and her friend's war. An unforgettable novel about truth, memory, and unexpected heroism.
