“Benjamin Pink and the Twenty-First Century” is the sequel (in my imagination) to The Adventures of Benjamin Pink, a children’s novel written and illustrated by Garth Williams, which I read as an eight-year-old in 1953. This is an animal story, as Benjamin Pink is a rabbit. Much has changed in the United States since the 1950s, and this story is a look at how it all might have affected the subsequent life of Benjamin Pink.
Looking back now, eight years after writing it, I see a common thread of themes and outlook with my more recent novels. At least I’m consistent.
This satirical, yet touching, story is available for Kindle on Amazon.com. So spring for $0.99, help support a starving author, and enjoy! (Full disclosure: This story is NOT for children; there are two instances of strong language.)
