Re: RARA-AVIS: Revising novels

Date: 21 Jan 2005

Chris responded to my noting Tim O'Brien's revisions of his novels:

"I don't know about this, but will try to take some time to check it out."

I heard It years ago from an O'Brien fan. A very cursory google search found numerous general mentions of his revising between editions, but no specifics. So I have no idea how extensive the changes are.

"Regardless, it would be a shame if someone passed up reading The Things They Carried simply because it has been revised. It's one of the great ones. Simple and direct writing that packs a wallop."

You've convinced me. I just pulled my edition (the 1991 Penguin paperback) off my shelf.
