The Bench offers a snapshot of an ephemeral encounter at the beach between an older man and a teen. Subtle hints at sexuality remain just that, hints which make the tale stronger without having to spell things out. Contemplative is the closest I can come to an adequate one word description.


Strong descriptions and few technical errors make this an enjoyable read.
