“The Dungeon Master”
“The Dungeon Master” is a short story by Sam Lipsyte, that is very much evocative of an era I didn't live through. The arc is about a generation just ten to twenty years older than mine. Their pop culture made familiar to me by TV and movies. Their experiences are the same though. For every generation being a teenager can be tough business. The story tells the tale of a high school D&D group and the troubles they face at and away from their table. It is done with a bit of dark humor and left me wanting way more. That is all I have in the tank to try and get you to read. It is only seven pages and well worth your time. Go!
Update: Ethan brought this short story full circle.
