Jacki Lyden speaks with novelist Tim O'Brien. O'Brien is best known for his works that chronicle the lives of the Vietnam War generation, including his National Book Award-winning Going After Cacciato. His latest book July July chronicles the 30-year reunion of the 1969 class of a fictitious Minnesota college. The reunion is held in the year 2000, because the class secretary had a nervous breakdown the year before. (July July ISBN: 0618039694, Houghton Mifflin Company)
