Crossing Over, one of the most beautiful and terrifying works to be written about Vietnam, launched Richard Currey's literary career. This collection of prose poems, vignettes of life during wartime, was begun shortly after Currey finished a four-year stint as a Navy corpsman. Crossing Over was hailed as being "both beautiful and terrifying... it is a work of art, the commonplace book from a terrible era." It was selected as best title of the year by Library Journal.
