''his second novel, Life during Wartime (fixup 1987), similarly embeds sf elements -- a 21st-century setting, advanced forms of drug manipulation -- into a Latin American venue which, essentially, absorbs these elements in a horrified, dense presentation of a Vietnam war conducted, this time, in the Western Hemisphere. The novella ''R & R'' (1986), which won a Nebula award, shapes the first part of the book; and a hallucinated, obsessed journey into the heart of darkness in search of underlying transcendence dominates its last sections'' (John Clute/Encyclopedia of SF).
