I had read two of his books, but h ...

... ife, too." (pg. 211, TCTK) His misfortunes caused by the State created a realistic reaction of a human being. Filitov turned against the Soviet Union and became an American spy.

Were I writing this essay on a "normal" book, I would be able to pose a question about the book itself and answer it in an ordinary sort of way. However, given the subject matter I have chosen, an essay on an individual book, though possible, would be a very tricky thing to do. It would be wiser, and probably easier, to respond to the man himself. My decision to respond to the man himself makes many more choices - what facet of Dr. Seuss shall ...

One less noted advancement the eras brought is a considerable amount of exciting and forewarning fiction. While most authors chose to warn of nuclear and post nuclear holocaust, one significant author chose a different approach. T ...
