Description
Fragments is a story about how war can make everything explosive -- even love -- and how two friends try to put the pieces of their lives together again.

"(Fragments) makes the usual semi-autobiographical account (of the Vietnam War)...seem flimsy and discursive in comparison....The shapeliness and sense of larger design (is) so elegantly executed in Fragments". -- Michiko Kakutani, New York Times

"The plot is believable, the characters sharply drawn, the prose clean and distinctive....Stand(s) with Tim O'Brien's Going After Cacciato, James Webb's Fields of Fire, Josiah Bunting's The Lionheads and John Del Vecchio's The 13th Valley....A strong, compelling novel". -- Marc Leepson, Washington Post

"There have been many books on Vietnam, and there will be many others. This is more a novel than the rest....Fuller has reassembled the exploded grenade". -- Bob MacDonald, Boston Sunday Globe

"Should our children ask about Vietnam, we would not go wrong to place this book in their hands....(Fragments) purveys more than information-it gives the war a literary form". -- David Myers, New York Times

"The best novel yet about the Vietnam War....It ranks with Norman Mailer's The Naked and the Dead and James Jones's From Here to Eternity". -- Daniel Kornstein, Wall Street Journal
