DESCRIPTION

Timothy Reye is on his bicycle rushing off into the countryside. He is a teenage boy who is leaving a tragic past, an unclear future, and he is searching for some sort of change. There are problems behind him, and he is riding as fast as he can to get away from those problems. Still, what he is searching for is just as uncertain. When he enters the town of Pleasantville, his journey appears to come into more trouble, but circumstances change and he is taken in by the Seneca family who is haunted by a recent tragedy of their own. Together the Senecas and Timothy Reye face their struggles and find new hope in each other. There are other difficulties that Timothy must deal with in the town, and he learns to look outside of himself. There are people in the town who offer Timothy loving support and friendship, but the town also has dark secrets and Tmothy finds himself thrown into the depths of its. Even with this, he grows and becomes a stronger individual. However, when the floor falls out from under him, he must face if anyone is willing to help him.

The book is based on dreams the author started having in his own teenage years that carried him through a dark episode in his own life. These dreams started in 1987, and several years later the author decided to compile them into a book. In 1994, he started writing in an effort to tie all of the tales of the fictional town of Pleasantville together as one complete story. In 1997, he finished it.

"The Pleasantville Experience" is a story of finding hope, facing problems, and discovering one capable of more than one thought. It is a story of receiving miracles, making miracles, and finding one's worth.

DESCRIPTION

Independent of each other, there are short literary works that Timothy S. Klugh has written. In 2014, these poems and essays were brought together as a collection. The works include subjects on philosophy, fantasy, personal feelings, despair and personal history. Unlike his other works, these shorter bits of literature tend to take a more specific and indepth focus into the heart of the author. They reveal the author himself more than any of his major creations. Because the works were so small, some were becoming obscure and at the risk of being lost. That is why they were brought together as a single collection of works.

DESCRIPTION

Death of the Mad Man is divided into two distinct subjects. The first is a set of metaphoric stories about an individual in perpetual darkness who has turned to suicide as the answer to all the loneliness, isolation and despair that he is in. He experiences visions of the love that he is searching for and philosophizes on his torment and the fulfillment he is trying to find. The answer in his heart is that it is love that he believes will save him, but time and time again, that love betrays him. It is clear that love is his answer, but where that love comes from is what takes so long to understand.

The second subject of these essays is intertwined in the metophoric stories. There are tributes to important people in the author's life at the point where he loses them. These essays discuss the love he had for these people and the reflections of how he felt about the lives they lived.

The collection of the Death of the Mad Man poem and essays are about someone who loved a few very deeply, but had great difficulty in finding love in himself... until one day he finds the answer.
