Don't Mean Nothing

No reviews
In this debut fiction collection--the first by a nurse who served in Viet Nam--Susan ONeill offers a glimpse into the war from a female perspective. These stories are about women, and men, who served in three combat hospitals in 1969 and 1970. They are interconnected, peopled by one-time "stars" and recurring characters, and they deal both with both the minutia of everyday life in wartime, and grander, more over-reaching themes--love and loss, faith and despair, morality, futility, military idiosyncrasy, magic, and the cost to the soul of a year in wars very particular hell. The stories are purely fictional, yet based loosely on the authors experiences, and they are laced as liberally with black humor as with pathos.
