A self-portrait from the digital generation, GOOD/GRIEF is an adventure through the anxieties of growing up, told in a memorable, unorthodox format. Combine Koppel's ingenious QuickCam images with his hilarious way with words and you have an arresting debut: six almost mythic incidents from Koppel's childhood, including the trauma of first pubic hairs and the realization that dancing with his mother can be kind of . . . well, you know, strange. It's just like a children's book--except it's for adults. By turns humorous, scary, tender, and always disarming, GOOD/GRIEF introduces a born storyteller.
