Northern Lights tells of the complex relationship between two brothers; one who went to Vietnam and one who stayed home. Caught in a blizzard in the remote woods of Minnesota, they fight for their lives while examining their past choices. "The suspense is spellbinding. . . What puts this tale above countless others is the care and eloquence of Tim O'Brien" (Chicago Sun-Times).
