Fiction. The adventure of seventeen-year-old Evan's life begins with mowing a neighbor's lawn, an ordinary chore that launches him into a world of desire, confusion, and betrayal. LAWNBOY is about the possibility of finding connection in a world of broken relationships and decaying motels -- the urban, artificial landscape of South Florida, as lush and troubling as Evan's imagination. This adventure-of-the-heart takes place in as evocative a landscape as any you'll find in fiction, its Floridian decay and lushness the perfect setting for a story dense with eroticism, disillusionment, and the surprising grace notes of renewal --Bernard Cooper.
