Inspired by 1961 events in the life of Florida State University quarterback Victor C. Prinzi during his time at the Florida School for Boys (now known as the Dozier School for Boys), Imregi and Minard’s Coach in Cottage C dramatizes how institutional life burns inside the minds and souls of faculty and boys alike.
On a crisp February morning in 1961, twenty-five-year-old Matt Grazi faces the most unwanted change of his life. His pro-ball career over, he stands as coach across the field from a platoon of teenage delinquents at Colby Hill School for Boys (CHB) in the northern panhandle of Florida. Matt understands a successful coaching season is his chance to remain in the football world, and his opportunity to give value to his years spent on the field.
Whether it's due to fear about asking for help, feeling overwhelmed by which type of help to get, or simply a lack of awareness that their symptoms are danger signs, many people wait far too long to get support when problems crop up.
Frequently, couples enter therapy as a last-ditch effort to save their relationship only to find the damage is too great to recover from. Those dealing with anxiety wait until they start fearing the fear itself or develop unhealthy coping strategies. Substance abusers wait until they hit "rock bottom." And those suffering from prolonged depression lose the energy or will to call a therapist-often with deadly consequences.
This is the book that's been missing, the one that every writer, beginner or master, must read. This is how to write. This is how to live. This is how to achieve authenticity. Please, read it. Live by it. Joy Parker, editor, reviewer.
This book is a special contribution to the literary world. It reveals a world of knowledge learned and earned from a man who has dedicated his life to literature. Author Brian Morgan masterfully orchestrates insights, quotes and quips from writers past and present. He has gathered his own gems over the years as he read and learned from Thoreau, Faulkner, Tolstoy, Angelou, and so many more. Live to Write is an encyclopedia of knowledge, creatively expressed. It's a road map for an aspiring writer. This book is a Middle Earth, a new world of learning for all writers. Live to Write is a treasure, opened and shared with all. Brian Crandall, author of Empathy Globally: Painful Portraits of People - in Poetry.
