“Aftermath surprised me like a full clip of bullets straight to the heart.  Donald Anderson, director of creative writing at the U.S. Air Force Academy (of all places) has managed to assemble some of our Vietnam generation’s finest writers—James Park Sloan, Tobias Wolff, Maxine Kumin, Louise Erdrich, to name a few—in one fast-moving literary platoon.  This is not blood and guts stuff, just guts, writing attacking America’s postwar torpor with insight and great wit.  Anybody who turns his nose up at this stuff deserves the country he’s got.”
