This piece was written as part of a course I am taking on the FutureLearn online study platform: Start Writing Fiction. As a means of getting feedback, I have decided to publish my first piece for this course on my blog. This short story and the characters in it could be the basis for something longer. I haven’t decided yet where this will go. Any constructive feedback is welcome!
A selection of media I have consumed recently has revolved around three themes: the Spanish Civil War (Homage to Catalonia), imperialism and neo colonialism (The Jakarta Method by Vincent Bevins) and the 1973 Coup in Chile (Chicago Boys). By selecting A Long Petal of the Sea by Isabel Allende, I inadvertently found a book that covered all three of these phenomena.
