Tom Bissell “The Father of All Things”
March 21st, 2007
The Vietnam war was the defining event for an entire generation of Americans, most critically for those sent to Vietnam to do battle. Mountains have been written about this generation; considerably less has been written about their children, and even less about the cross-generational impact of the war.
Journalist and fiction writer Tom Bissell now contributes in a major way, with a book about his journey to Vietnam a couple of years ago with his ex-Marine father, John Bissell, who found much to marvel at in 21st century Vietnam. Tom Bissell calls his book “The Father of All Things.”
