The Narratives is collection of short introspective essays written by an average guy in an effort to better understand himself, his life, and his relationship with the world around him while traveling the road of self-discovery. These works can best be described as the author's unique brand of journaling, encompassing both self-reflective entries, and an expression of thoughts and opinions surrounding social issues of the present day.
The Narratives III: Fanning The Flames departs from its predecessors, taking a more cynical personal tone and presenting a more pointed, indignant, view. Half the essays are a further examination of the author's innermost thoughts, while the remaining pieces are lightweight "op-ed's", touching on issues that are front and center to our national discourse.
The Narratives III: Fanning The Flames, is the third volume in The Narratives series.
Vince Guaglione is a guy who asks lots of questions, not only of himself but of his society and the world around him. Although he claims he's found no real answers, that hasn't stopped him in his quest to gain perspective on a little something we call life.
When he's not at his real job, you can find him sucking down venti-sized coffees at a brisk pace his local Starbucks, thinking up new writing projects, or pondering his mystery questions of life.
Originally from Philadelphia PA, Vince now resides in Raleigh NC.

The Narratives III: Fanning the Flames (Volume 3)
It hides in the subconscious in grotesque form, and creeps forward in moments of half-sleep or in dreams—when I am at my most vulnerable, and where it can inflict the most harm. It is there that it is unstoppable, piercing the hands, eyes, and face with its razor-sharp tendrils of hate, and making me wish I were dead.
