About Severed Arms
The Sixties had been romanticized and vilified. Rarely had it been described from the circumstance of ordinary observer/participant. Thanks to an accident of the author’s birth, he had been caught up in something extraordinary. Severed Arms. Illuminated in the severing—by a policeman’s billie—of arms intertwined to corral and protect draft resisters.The result? Five stories. Five windows into the story-teller’s growing up in the Sixties.
