Itís a cool little book, written by a public school librarian, featuring several dramatic monologues from the points of view of children inhabiting a small medieval village.
When I was the intended age range for such a thing, I would have automatically dismissed it as "totally gay," and gone back to my S. E. Hinton, but coming at it as an adult, it resonates more. It reads much like Rilkeís "Song of the Blind Man," "Song of the Dwarf," "Song of the Suicide," etc., and no gory medieval detail is spared.
I have some fun gigs coming up, which Iíll post about in greater detail as they come up, but briefly:
Hereís a photo from the first-ever Beefstock.
