Short Time (a novella)
Fred Misurella adds a vital novella to the powerful literary tradition of soldiers returning home. His vision is complex. His prose conveys the disorienting juxtaposition of past and present, life and death, war and peace, good and evil, without ever relinquishing its lucidity. The novella was a fine read, a delight: to immerse oneself in a story that's at once compressed and densely layered, yet utterly clear and wonderfully paced. The kind of story in which one wants to read every word (and does)."
