‘Youth in the City’ on Amazon

I wrote a book. ‘Youth in the City: Various Small Fictions‘ is a collection of short stories and vignettes written during my years in San Francisco. The book is 60+ or 80+ pages depending on format, digital or paper. The original working papers are close to 1,000. Did quite a bit of editing.

Currently it’s available on Amazon and I’m sure a few other places. Pick it up in paperback HERE.

The crux —

“‘Youth in the City’ finds a series of wandering narrators, lost and searching. Part imagined future, these series of vignettes imagine the world as a caustic enemy with the only freedoms being sex, alcohol, and the quest for God.’

The excerpt —

“Jesus was a horrific villain. To corral and gather a crowded mass, this is the true body of evil. The only real good is in solitude, separate mannerisms.

We, mankind, are the ones that named a group of planets a universe, but earth is unto itself. Free and floating, no God above and not God below, but God within. Each of us, our own personal Lord and Savior.”
