How goes it my fellow bibliophiles? 2016 has been one hell of a year. This year we have seen the death of many a beloved celebrity, a sketchy election and monumental social action.

Bizzarma is a true story that spans from the 1950's "Leave it to Beaver" American Dream era to the political and drug charged 1960's and 1970's.
