“Living in San Francisco, I’ve known of Lorenz’s work for years, and now the secret is out. Here’s an artist whose palette holds the colors beauty and brutality, squalor and tenderness. Lucky for us, he mixes them into literary combinations we’ve never known before. One Way Down (Or Another) might be the best debut I’ve ever read!”
–Joshua Mohr, author of Sirens
Paperback, 180 pages
Published February 22nd 2017 by Civil Coping Mechanisms

What did the main character learn as a result of his experiences as outlined in the book? Did he impact anyone else's life? Why did he go home to Ohio? Why did he go back to San Francisco? ...more
