Keep Connected to Family by Sharing Slices of Life
When the world suddenly went sideways in the time of Coronavirus, Samurai Uncle (author Peter J. O’Brien) started a slice of life story series that I’ve subtitled, “Life in Lockdown”. They’ve been written from a wry perspective of what it’s like to live in the bizarre lockdown of 2020. So much of society seems reflected in fun house mirrors. It’s still us, but warped and bent and stretched. Leave it to Peter to put a comic spin on all of that.
The stories, released every Sunday since April 28, have helped each of us feel more connected as a family, made us laugh and given us insight into the workings of Peter’s mind.
A little background about the main title reveals his inspiration:
The Decameron was written by Giovanni Bocaccio during the time of the Black Plague in 14th century Italy. A young group of the aristocracy fled the contagion in Florence for the relative safety of the country. To keep their spirits up until the epidemic passed, each took turns regaling the group with a story a day.
