Short fiction by Marc Zimmerman. Stories of childhood and not-so-innocents abroad in Spain and Italy—plus a Jewish American tragic-comedy.ISBN 0- 9767019-4- 4.Houston/Santiago, Chile. Global CASA/Bravo y Allende 2006.  Three stories of childhood and a Jewish American tragic-comedy framed by two stories of not-so- innocents abroad in the 1960s: these are winter tales stored, life moments storied, fictions sometimes lived, from the darkness and through his own looking glass sometimes darkly, by a critic/theorist who began as a playwright and narrator, who always sought heat and light, and who has now decided to bring forth these illuminations of his fragmented and obscured imaginary—these tales of winter discontent from the near tail end of his winter years.  https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0976701944/ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_bibl_vppi_i1
