George Licata, an author who has known he is destined to write stories since an early age, has completed his new book “Welcome to the Dance USN”: an absorbing personal story about a teenager who chooses to fight a war on the other side of the world, a phenomenon full of events that he has recorded in a journal. This is the second novel George has published in as many years; his first novel being “One Behind the Ear”.

Author Licata recounts the time when the police gassed him and other protesters: “I was protesting the war on this same sidewalk four days ago. ‘Stop the war. Hell no, we won’t go!’ We held signs and marched and were gassed by the police. Others were clubbed. Once they dispersed us, we gathered at a park and got high and had heated conversations about how we are going to change the world. And stop the war. Guess that didn’t work out.
I got out of the car and said my farewells. As the car drove away, I threw up. I wiped my face and went inside. I took the elevator to the third floor. On the third floor, I was given a folder full of papers and forms and told to get in line. After standing in line, I received more papers and forms to put in my folder. I was told to report to room 302.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, George Licata’s work is a moving and historically accurate story of one man’s experience in a navy boot camp, starting from the events that transpired before he was sent to the place to the time he gets his discharge papers. Licata writes in a detailed and personal manner, successfully presenting the said war’s realities and the conditions of those sent into the camp.

Readers who wish to experience this riveting work can purchase “Welcome to the Dance USN” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, Kobo or Barnes and Noble.
