Ten years ago when Tatjana Soli began to write her novel about female journalists in Viet Nam, she was warned that it might not sell. Instead, this prophetic tale about America's foreign wars received a front page review in the New York Times Book Review and was chosen one of the most important books of last year. For its new publication in paperback, Soli discusses the subjects of war, women and novel-writing.
