Paco's Story

By Heinemann, Larry




Larry Heinemann is an American novelist.  His body of work, which includes three novels and a memoir, is primarily concerned with the Vietnam War. His novel, Paco’s Story was the winner of the National Book Awards in 1987. The story chronicles the war experiences of Paco Sullivan, the only surviving soldier of the Fire Base Harriette massacre during the Vietnam war. Despite being the only survivor, Paco is grievously wounded, left for dead and discovered by a medic. The novel is narrated by the ghosts killed that day at the Harriette massacre. The story follows Paco, who is in constant motion from nagging pain, back to the United States to begin his struggle for assimilation into society.  A raw, memorable novel richly detailed by Heinemann’s graphic prose.

Paco's Story

Heinemann, Larry

New York: Farrar Straus Giroux. Near Fine in Fine dust jacket. 1986. 1st Edition; 1st Printing. Hardcover. 0374228477 . This book is in Near Fine condition and has a Fine dust jacket. The book and its contents are in clean, bright condition. There is a strip of beginning sunning to the bottom edge of the book covers. The text pages are clean and bright. The dust jacket is crisp and clean. This is the second novel by the author of Close Quarters. "Paco Sullivan's story commences when his infantry company is sent to a fire base named Harriette, a place with a reputation for being as good as -going hom and spending the night in the house where you grew up-. Despide precedent, a vicious firefight that becomes a massacre ensues." This book won the National Book Award for 1987. "Larry Heinemann (born 1944) is an American novelist born and raised in Chicago. His published work—three novels and a memoir—is primarily concerned with the Vietnam War...His second and critically most acclaimed novel is Paco's Story, which won the 1987 U. S. National Book Award for Fiction in a major surprise that has remained controversial. Other critics and essayists thought the award appropriate and well deserved. At the time, Heinemann's only comment on the controversy was that the check for $10,000 was already cashed and the Louise Nevelson sculpture was not likely to be returned." .
