Inspired, of course, by Daniel Keyes’ “Flowers for Algernon”. So, credit can only be taken for rendering it into short form.
Never read ‘Flowers for Algernon’, but you’ve whetted my appetite now…highly original!
Very nice. Intriguing and original!
I loved Flowers for Algernon! Read it years ago and cried and cried. Great job!
A very clever and original piece. x
Mike you have a great ability to ferret out good material. I love coming back to see what you have next.
Praise from the praiseworthy is praise indeed!
