The pathos and beauty of moral frustrations comprise the central theme of The Grass is Greener. The repetitive enclosure of the book form, with its capacity to enact a cycle of constraint within the bound sequence of its pages, reinforces the irony of this work–even as the final signature pulls back, catching its breath and ours in a dry laugh of response. It is tight, succinct, and highly aesthetic as an expression of a wry, dark vision of the lived condition.

The Grass is Greener is available from Nexus Press, 535 Means Street, Atlanta, GA 30318
