Summary :

Whether set in the combat zones of Vietnam or the brittle social and intellectual milieu of an elite New England college, whether recounting the poignant last battles of an alcoholic ex-fighter or the hallucinatory visions of an American wandering lost in Bombay in the aftermath of an epileptic fugue, Thom Jones' stories strike with a profound and devestating impact. His vision of the human condition is almost brutal, for in the world of Jones' ficton there is such a preponderance of darkness that light itself becomes a form of torture. Yet each story in this collection is infused with the surprising, perhaps even ennobling grace of the spirit that ought to collapse, but cannot.
