Advance praise for Of Rice and Men

“Of Rice and Men honors the American men and women who served in Vietnam, and shows respect for the Vietnamese people, yet it is still able to make us laugh at the war’s expense. In the deft hands of Richard Galli, we laugh out loud and cry out loud, as well. This is the most unforgettable story of Vietnam that I have ever read.”
–Robin Moore, author of The Hunt for Bin Laden

"Richard Galli’s wonderful novel "Of Rice and Men" is every bit as much a Vietnam war novel as the best combat stories, but warmer, more real, and exquisitely funny. Who knows if the combat troops had been there to support the mission of the folks who built, farmed and healed, rather than the other way around, the outcome of the war might have been different."
–Phillip Jennings, author of Nam-A-Rama

“Some good laughs, some wonderful scenes. A creative, new-generation film director might turn this into Vietnam’s M*A*S*H.”
–John M. Del Vecchio, author of The 13th Valley

“Of Rice and Men is wonderful and wonderfully well written. It’s a singular addition to the literature of the Vietnam War; a refreshing tour de ‘farce’ of the first order.”
–Bernard Edelman, author of Dear America: Letters Home from Vietnam
