Green Freedom Delights, Haunts
Green Freedom is set in the 1960s, a time of experiment, openness and a naive optimism that rebellion against the Establishment could change the world, that getting back to the land would be a huge movement and heal a scarred America and our sick collective soul.
This is the backdrop as three characters lurch through the messiness of love, hope, greed and deception.
Luke is an aspiring writer stuck in a low level position at a PR agency, which is, of course, the ant

Who would have thought that a novel involving an anguished triangle of passion and deceit could be this funny and this heartbreaking. The characters are terrifically well-realized, the dialogue is spot on, and this is the best novel I've read in a long, long time. It's beautifully written. It's a love story in the middle of a novel about crime and redemption. But the main pleasure is in the characters and what they say to each other. Green Freedom is a real winner and deserves a wide audience.
