Jack's first published short story. (Kindle - July, 2012)
Physical violence and emotional abuse inflict a profound and lasting impact on the human spirit, sometimes to the point of breaking it from within. This emotionally compelling short story (about 7,000 words) explores the impact of isolation and brutality, and how torment can inspire and release the potential of the spirit. A harrowing, heart-breaking, and yet still hopeful tale of survival.
While the characters and events in this short story are entirely fictional, the picture they paint is for too many people, and all too often, all too real.get The Basement for Kindle on Amazon
