Reader's Diary #1334- D.M. Gillis: A Canadian Over Hiroshima

It took a few reads and a few Google searches before D.M. Gillis' "A Canadian Over Hiroshima" started to make any sense to me. It's still far from clear and I'm left with vague theories about adopting another person's guilt but I could be way off base. There are creative vignettes throughout that I appreciated (the idea of dreaming that one is an atomic bomb!) but as a cohesive whole I was a bit lost. However, it did remind me Salman Rushdie's Satanic Verses, and so I'm sure there are many who would love this story.
