W.D. Ehrhart in Conversation: Vietnam, America and the Written Word, edited by Jean-Jacques Malo, McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers, 2017

Revered by scholars and the public alike, W.D. Ehrhart, known as “the poet of the Vietnam War,” eloquently and cuttingly writes about the American experience in Vietnam. A Purple Heart recipient, his “poetry of witness” is a personal reflection that couples politics with the personal.

Despite being widely read, only two major interviews with the prominent poet and author have been published. Jean-Jacques Malo fills this void with a complete collection of unpublished interviews over the past 25 years that display Ehrhart’s ever evolving views over the past three decades.
