This is a short story. Just three thousand words. But Leland Dirks packs more power and more relevance into these three thousand words than most authors can put in a whole library of books.
This is the kind of quality writing that proves there are independent and self-published authors out there that are in the top tier of writers ANYWHERE. This is, to use a somewhat maligned term in recent times, LITERATURE. Real, honest-to-Hemingway, literature.
I would recommend this story to anyone. It’s worth the price of admission. It’s truly worth reading.
