Rising Like the Tucson is black comedy set in the latter half of the Vietnam War. Lieutenant Christopher, hopeless as an officer, is hounded by his real estate developer father back in the states, who is convinced of the victory to come when Vietnam will "rise like a Tucson" from its ashes and profits will soar. Absurd and explosive by turns, the mordantly hysterical and intricate story is the Vietnam war's Catch 22. "Deftly limns the overwhelming lunacy of the war in Vietnam," Tim O'Brien. "A masterpiece," Boston Globe.
