SYMPATHY FOR THE DEVIL.
Edition: First printing.
Garden City, NY: Doubleday, 1987. dj. SIGNED hardcover first edition - The author's first novel, an account of the Vietnam War which has become a modern classic. "Hanson joins the Green Berets fresh out of college. Carrying a volume of Yeatss poems in his uniform pocket, he has no idea of what he's about to face in Vietnam from the enemy, from his fellow soldiers, or within himself. In vivid, nightmarish, and finely etched prose, Kent Anderson takes us through Hanso's two tours of duty and a bitter, ill-fated return to civilian life in-between, capturing the day-to-day process of war like no writer before or since."
