The Dream of the Burning Boy @ The Nerve
THE DREAM OF THE BURNING BOY
by David West Read
Since the sudden death of his favorite student, high-school teacher Larry Morrow has been falling asleep at his desk and dreaming. The school’s guidance counselor is hanging inspirational posters designed to help everyone “process their emotions.” The student’s sister and friends—more agitated and hormonal than usual—find little solace in Dante’s Inferno. And as Larry’s dreams intensify, a shocking secret is exposed. A secret that will change everything. Searing yet surprisingly funny, THE DREAM OF THE BURNING BOY is about finding the strength to move on…and the courage to live without regret.
