Her previous memoirs and books of fiction include The Woman Warrior, China Men, Tripmaster Monkey, and The Fifth Book of Peace. She is also the editor of Veterans of War, Veterans of Peace, writings from more than a decade of writing-and-meditation workshops she's led for Vietnam veterans and others to heal themselves through art.

James Ragan's new book of poems is Too Long A Solitude, which C.K. Williams has praised as "fine-grained, a remarkable range of history." Among his previous books of poems are In the Talking Hours, Womb-Weary, and The Hunger Wall. In 1985 he was one of three Americans, including Bob Dylan and Robert Bly, invited to perform their poetry at the First International Poetry Festival in Moscow. He has also written for stage and film and worked in various production capacities for many films, among them the Academy Award-winning The Deer Hunter. His most recent films are The Last Story of the Century, based on the siege of Sarajevo, and The Shoe.
