View Author Bio
McPherson, Myra :
Myra MacPherson was a longtime political writer for the Washington Post and was recently cited for her work in a New Yorker profile of the newspaper. She continues to write for national magazines and the Internet. She is the author of The Power Lovers and She Came to Live Out Loud.
"Any approach to the subject of Vietnam's aftermath must begin with Myra MacPherson's groudbreaking book . . . . [It] remains one of the most moving and important works on the Vietnam bookshelf."
--Arnold R. Isaacs, author of Vietnam Shadows
"A haunting chorus of voices, a moving, deeply disturbing evocation of an era."
--San Francisco Chronicle
"Myra MacPherson's book belongs with the best of the works on Vietnam, and there has been no better body of war literature that I know of."
--Joseph Heller, author of Catch-22
"A brilliant and necessary book . . . this stunning depiction of Vietnam's bitter fruit is calculated to agitate even the most complacent American."
"There have been many books on the Vietnam War, but few have captured its second life as memory better than Long Time Passing."
--Washington Post Book World
"A most perceptive and fascinating account of the continuing impact of the Vietnam experience. . . . As this important book makes clear, we will be paying the costs for Vietnam for long years to come. Myra MacPherson not only lived through the Vietnam years, she writes with the insight of one still deeply caught up in the issues of that tragedy."
"Enthralling reading . . . full of deep and strong emotions."
--New York Times
