THE AGE OF THE FISH

Post war youth heading towards a horrible future in a story of a regimented state. An interesting job, where suspense holds though characters are secondary in interest. The story of the inner rebellion of a young teacher against the precepts of the state, brought to a head when he sees tragedy as the result of hiw own cowardice, and is driven by conscience to attempt to right the wrong for which he was responsible. Love and belief in humanity set against the regimented production of machine-like robots destined for one purpose only, war.
