Miguel Gardel reads from his short story, All The Books In The Library. Exploring life after the army as a Latino, and what might be termed post-traumatic unemployment disorder; the revolving door inner city existence of rooming houses, recruiting stations, landlords, unemployment lines, and armies addicted to young men. And formulating rebellion and giving it shape through poetry, and a novel’s flush of eloquent words.
