AbstractBurning Bullets is a memoir told in short story form. I intended for each story to stand alone as a piece of short nonfiction, but also to connect to the surrounding chapters, giving broader layers of my life in identifiable chunks instead of a straight chronological memoir.The stories begin at age ten and navigate through some of the most difficult times in my life: illness in the family, divorce, isolation, loss of innocents, and depression. The book contains moments of triumph as well, and ends on a high note with a scene of my life now, as a husband, father, and teacher--elements of my life that always seemed out of reach, and now these aspects drive me forward.
