This is a story of 'faction'.
What is true and what is invention
is for the reader to decide.
It is the story of a man who made a fool
of himself and paid the price.
It is a story of something that happens
all too often and with depressing regularity
in today's society.
A story that illustrates just how thin
is the ice we skate on.
The safety net between safety and disaster
is surprisingly fragile.
The stories of Vera, Rocco, Alfredo, Nino,
Enrico and Alina are depressingly true.
Their names have been changed.
It seemed the right ting to do.
The only other thing that changes
in this tale is the life of the hero himself.
In his new life on the street.
