Re: RARA-AVIS: Vietnam and hardboiled

Michael Herr's Dispatches blew me away when it first came out. Really great writing, it's a new journalism account of his time reporting in Vietnam. He went on to write some (most?) of the voiceover for Apocalyse Now.

I still haven't read him, but didn't Kent Anderson serve in Vietnam? Wasn't his Sympathy for the Devil a Vietnam novel?
