Bracing against gusts of wind, I splash through puddles and crush red-orange-yellow leaves that splotch the sidewalk to the radiologist’s office. There I drink the barium cocktail and slide into the CAT scan ring; the machine spins and hums. The doctor shakes his head, wrinkles his mouth, and sighs with practiced sympathy: “Terminal.” I trudge home in rain spattering onto fallen foliage.
William T. Hathaway’s new book, Lila, the Revolutionary, is a fable for adults about an eight-year-old Indian girl who sparks a world revolution for social justice. Chapters are posted at http://www.amazon.com/dp/1897455844. A selection of his writing is available at http://www.peacewriter.org.
