Marcia Franklin talks with Vietnam War veteran and author Tim O'Brien about his works, which include the National Book Award-winning "Going After Cacciato," and "The Things They Carried," which was a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize. The two discuss his style of writing, which often blurs the lines between fact and fiction, his new life as a first-time father, and his thoughts on war and peace.
