The Fragile Miracle of Martin Gray
previous / index / next

Martin Gray, wrapped in a blanket, and his dog walking across the lawn in front of a stone farmhouse.

"Martin [Gray] roamed the hilltop waiting for his wife who would never return . . . and listened for his children racing home from their two-room school, down the narrow road, in Tanneron village. And for the laughter--now silent forever. [October 1970.]" The Fragile Miracle of Martin Gray, p. 38.
