This We Defend
"If the satirist is going to take potshots at everything that has a lot of power and prestige he has to watch out how he does it. People of importance don't like being shown up as fools, scoundrels or fakers and they're apt to have ways of making their resentment felt."
"A Treasury Of Satire" by Edgar Johnson.
The book you are about to read is a true story written as a fictional prose narrative novel. It is what many would call a 'true novel'. It's a story told on how to solve a noise or 'quality of life' problem with a neighbor in New York City. The neighbor in the story is a group of veterans and an American Legion post. It's a story about conflict resolution, anger management, gun control, and how to get things done when battling arrogance, indifferent government, and neighborhood fascism. Several literary tricks have been unsuccessfully used writing this unmasking of hypocrisy such as artificial names, false locations, and inaccurate dates to protect both the innocent and the guilty parties. This failure is not the fault of the author.
