"The Face in the Garden traces the struggle of a young man to gain some perspective on his family, his times and himself. The prose and poetry build a multi-faceted portrait as they seize on different moments in the struggle. At the heart of the narrative is a relationship between father and son that is complex, arduous and ultimately joyous. Inlaid in the procession of fiction and poetry is the image of the garden, which intensifies and unifies the narrative. The writing is woven together in a unique structure that is jazz-like in its shifts and movements." Around 175 pages total, in excellent condition with minimal shelfwear to edges. No sunning.
