Brilliantly and vividly written, Paco's Story plunges the reader into the violence and casual cruelty of the Vietnam War, and the ghostly aftermath that often dealt the harshest blows.

"Intense, vividly written...a very frightening, yet wondrously rendered tale of violent extremes of human behavior. A strongly emotional reading experience, it is highly recommended for collections of serious contemporary fiction." (Library Journal)
Promotional description set expectations that were never met. Is this a story about Paco, Vietnam, the narrator, or a small town in the 60's? Couldn't tell. Narrator went overboard describing situations, settings, and relationships that added little to plot.
