Literary Fiction; Shattered Mourning and Murder

A librarian once spoke about "The Contract for Violence" that we sign when we engage in public discourse . Working, school, relationships; any activity where our participation involves reaping a portion of limited and finite resources. Some groups and individuals exert a presumed Manifest Destiny; an entitlement over the lives and well-being of others, leaving scraps for the less fortunate and broken, culminating in self-destructive behaviors, and more violence against their own tribes. This well written novel is a perfect snapshot of this phenomenon via an out-of-control vehicle of fiction. Bravo.
