Where the "f" words were Fallout & Fireball. The Atomic Times. The memoir that took 50 years to write.
As a young soldier, my DH, Michael, was sent to "observe" a series of what would be the deadliest US nuclear tests in the Pacific Proving Grounds. The island was called Eniwetok and the "f" words were fallout and fireball. The experience—a real-life CATCH-22 with radiation—was so traumatic it took him decades to come to terms with what he saw, what he experienced & what he felt. In Anne R Allen's blog, today, Michael explains how THE ATOMIC TIMES came—finally—to be written and offers some advice for those thinking of writing a memoir.
