by Toby Griffen
In a surreal dream, the protagonist finds himself at a ball in Charleston’s Hibernian Hall, where he witnesses the suffering of the Lady in the Shiny Green Dress. When she looks to him imploringly, he awakes in a panic and realizes that he must come to an understanding of her anguish before he can do … whatever it is he is supposed to do. In an extended vision, he descends into what he perceives to be Charleston – or rather, some alternative Charleston – of thirty years earlier, and he joins his soul with that of a distraught cadet returning at midnight to The Acropolis, The Military Academy of the South. Here, Cadet undertakes a journey through love and loss, isolation and unity, and confrontation with religious and political bigotry.
