16 Reviews
Starts with 17 year old Evan mowing a neighbour's lawn, an ordinary chore which launches him in a world of desire, confusion, and betrayal. Rejected by his parents, struggling to make contact with his lost brother, he learns of the nature of exile. Lawnboy is about the possibility of finding connection in a world of broken relationships and decaying motels, failed housing developments sinking back into the swamps, the urban, artificial landscape of South Florida, as lush and troubling as Evan's imagination.
