"Poisoned Jungle" - a Novel by James Ballard.
Some wars don’t end when the fighting stops. In Poisoned Jungle, James Ballard forcefully captures a medic’s fears, confusion and strength on the ground in Vietnam in prose that mirrors the best of Tim O’Brien. But his story goes deeper, in the eloquent depiction of the struggle to readjust to stateside life, a flight to find oneself, and an eventual landing spot away from the clatter of the guns. James Ballard’s work represents in tones that are eminently human the timeless quest for peace, one that transcends all wars, both external and internal.
