Foreword Reviews review of Flesh and Bone by William Alton

“After his parents’ divorce and a tough move to Oregon, teenage Bill turns to drugs and alcohol to calm his nerves as he struggles with his sexual identity in a prejudiced small town. Plagued by nightmares as his addictions grow and his depression deepens, Bill gets the impression from his distant parents and grandparents that “there are things in the world too big to talk about”—namely love. Told in a series of short vignettes, this raw and heart-wrenching novel illuminates how loneliness can exacerbate depression and how while compassion may not always help, it can reveal the start of the path toward healing.”
