“We weren’t meant to be here.” From the modern classic memoir, In Pharaoh’s Army, a selection by Tobias Wolff portrays the final days of civilian life before boarding the bus that would carry him to the blind carnage of the Tet offensive and the greater War. With his uncanny eye for detail, pitiless candor and mordant wit, Wolff brings to life the tender and transitory hours when nothing had seemed irrevocable and before the sergeant called out the names of the men that would.
