2014: The Key and the Rose

With its origins in a daydream-inspired Facebook note that parodied the garish and lurid excesses of Yukio Mishima’s corpus, The Key and the Rose is a story that I’m writing for NaNoWriMo 2014. The story is about a brilliant woman in 1960s Japan forging ahead in a society that maintained traditional appearances as ethics, morals, and spirituality were eroded in favour of materialism and selfishness.
