Steven H. Miles MD
Fiction: General/Other
This completed manuscript for a novel is about a 2006 hearing where a young woman attorney and a 2nd generation African torture survivor try to convince a tribunal to send a military doctor for trial for torture. It is based on extensive personal knowledge about torture doctors, their work, the impunity that protects them. Three closing stories tell of the transformation of the two women and of the doctor. Vivid setting in Senegal. Emphasis is on the story, not the torture, not a procedural. Map. 75,000 words.
