    What's strong and true in Harrison's Flowers -- the hideous chaos of war, the stirring heroism of photographers and journalists -- falls victim to what's familiar, melodramatic and false.

    It's that very savagery -- not its love-can-conquer-all theme -- that makes Harrison's Flowers worth picking. show more
