Greetings from Below, David Philip Mullins
At 14, Nick Danze steals trees to watch them die in the desert; visits a swingers club on Christmas at twenty-six; and spends his thirties married to the true love of his life, who he’s not sure he loves at all. In Nick's wounded honesty and queasy self-consciousness, Mullins awakens us to the perverse power of alienation and shame.
