About the Author:

David Zielinski lives in the country, near El Centro, California, and is a Professor of English at Imperial Valley College. His daughters Devika and Monika provide constant inspiration.

From Library Journal:

Zielinski's first novel chronicles the final day in the life of disturbed Vietnam veteran Nick Ames. Unable to differentiate between Godzilla movies and reality, Nick makes a last-ditch effort to define himself, but the result is apocalyptic violence when his small circle of bizarre yet ultimately shallow "friends" fails to rejuvenate his degenerating psyche. The story is told in beautifully subdued prose which softly reverberates the violence that exists at the novel's core. This work gracefully defines the human condition through Nick's childlike mind as alternately tragic, ironic, and absurd. Zielinski has written an exceptional first novel that is recommended for contemporary literature collections.-- "Mark Annichiarico," Library Journal correction: We have just been informed that the price for Gayle Rivers's Hunter's Run , reviewed in LJ 11/15/89, has been changed from $18.95 to $21.95.
