Mr. Laurence talked about his memoir, The Cat from Hue: A Vietnam War Story, published by Public Affairs, and about the traumatic Vietnam War stories he covered that became a personal burden that he carried long after the war was over. He talked about what he witnessed in Vietnam and told the story of a very idiosyncratic cat who was determined to play his part in the Vietnam revolution. In reconstructing his experiences, Laurence relied not only on his notes and memory but on dozens of hours of film footage shot at the time. The book is full of bizarre stories of unknown soldiers and famous. A video clip was shown of an interview with Jed Duvall responding to a story in the book in which he is mentioned. close
