The Book Of Virtue - Plot & Excerpts

His cop buddies said, “Frank, Frank is just intense.”
Other kids go, “My dad took me to the Yankees.”
Mine, he took out my teeth.
With intensity.
The horrors of peace. He bought the farm when I was seventeen. My mom, she took off for Boise, Idaho.

They buried my father in the American flag. No argument, he was a patriot.

My father died horribly. A slow, lingering, eat-your-guts-in-pieces cancer. His buddies admired my constant vigil.

The devil, maybe. With any luck.

I asked, “Are you afraid?”
