How were you feeling and what were you thinking in 2020, about the rampaging virus, about the politics, about the efforts to control the infections (medical and other) and your personal upended situation? As The World Burns: Writers and Artists Reflect on a World Gone Mad from Indie Blu(e) Publishing is an anthology of such thoughts and feelings from 115 real people. In this volume you will almost certainly find your own experience reflected more than once. There is the raw and the gentle, the deeply personal and social comment, and more. There is anger and grief, and despair and hope. The editors have chosen well. They know good writing.
