    Stories with marvelous twists and turns. Some good, some surprising, some bad. The good and surprising make up for the bad. I loved reading about the impact of the Atom bomb on the lives of those who lived during

    Inside of the book is fine but I purchased this book with the promise that it was ‘very good’ quality wise. That’s a stretch at best. The cover is very mangled/creased and ripped on the back. With the inside couple of pages, front and back, also being very mangled. This was meant to be a gift but I’d be embarrassed to giv
