Next... a story about a person, who's in danger of blowing up at any moment. Doug’s father had reached a point in his old age, where he had become an unpredictable danger to himself and others, and Doug was determined to try and swoop in to fix everything. But diffusing a bomb is a delicate operation, and Doug soon found out that a human bomb who happens to be your father, can be the most dangerous of all.
Doug Bost is a screenwriter and short story writer living in Brooklyn. He's written a short film called Policy of Truth, about experiences with his dad and Alzheimer’s. It’s currently on the festival circuit.
