Three from the Stones

At the heart of a walled city, three youth struggle to carve a place for themselves amid a cold and alienating society, drawing on their dreams and the legends of their childhood to make sense of their own life and purpose. For one of them, deciphering the meaning of a mysterious song may unlock the answer."Every night Rhoneh dreamed. And, but for during his Days in Adversity, he resided while awake entirely in his mind, elaborating on his dreams..." In this dystopian coming of age novella, three young men are slowly drawn out of their separate, isolated routines to engage with the increasingly strange demands of their society.
