A Short Excerpt From Tom’s New Novel, Four Days with Hemingway’s Ghost

“A man can learn from his past mistakes, and he should, but reliving them . . . that
does absolutely no good.  If you rehash all the poor choices and decisions you’ve made, it’s like stabbing yourself again and again.  Your spirit will always carry its deepest scars.  There’s no way to eliminate them.  And from time to time, they’ll come out of hiding on their own. When they do, let them reprimand you. Take what’s coming; ride it out, get it over with.  But by all means, don’t ever entertain them any longer than you have to, and never invite them back.”
