After a horrific famine and civil war, all that remains of the Unites States are four mega hospitals which have grown into city-states, and 10 million “healthies” forced to scavenge in the wilderness between.

In this age, man known as Henderson, the director of one of the remaining hospital libraries, goes on a quest to learn the true history of the past decades. The myth that he has been indoctrinated with is that “All healthies are irrational, for every human is born with imperfection. Therefore, anyone with health must have mental disease, hence the Agony.” But Henderson does not accept this truism, and so instead sets out on an epic adventure to seek out the origins of his broken civilization.

About the Author

Richard Paris formerly taught Creative Writing and Rhetoric at Monmouth University. He is the author of a novel, Prophecies of Yesterday, two books of poetry, Last Covenant and Walt’s Place, and 24 plays (3 shamelessly revising the Theban plays, 3 on Iago after Othello, 3 on a rich guy who just wants to hang out with his old buddies, 3 on family life including Happy Marriage and Friendly Divorce, plus plays on evolution, psychosis, betrayal and the academy – not necessarily in that order).Educated at Cal, Berkeley (back in the day), he has worked as a groundskeeper, firefighter, union negotiator, and, briefly, a state bureaucrat. Kept sane (mostly) by his psychologist wife, Paris can often be found muttering about scenarios while wandering through town.
