I suppose one of the things that just nails me about Tim O’Brien is his sincerity. To me, this quality is on full display in this filmed discussion he recently had with Tobias Wolff. The subject: Writing and War. But these writers–both Vietnam vets–talk about a lot more than mere war stories. The chief focus is the making of art, and the insights that can be taken from their talk, filmed at this packed-house event at Standford University, is enlightening and inspiring.
