The Marine, the Lady & the Hag
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
From her perch astride a clock high on the wall of the Transit Authority, an ancient Hag crooks her finger to summon a well-heeled Lady of fashion to do her will. The Lady approaches the bench on which sleeps a young Marine fresh from Parris Island.
Set in New York City at the height of the Vietnam war, this is loss of innocence fable. The Marine will confront the horrors that await in Vietnam and will glimpse the societal structures that enable those horrors and are indifferent to them. A good read at only 3000 words.
