I Saw a Man Hit His Wife

Front Cover
White Pine Press, 1997 - Fiction - 167 pages

It used to be that all men would be tyrants if they could. Nowadays, or so it would seem from Mark Greenside's collection of short fiction, men are struggling just to get a word in edgewise, and maybe catch a ball game once in a while... The problem with writing about men's insecurities is that they aren't necessarily any more interesting than women's insecurities -- or your neighbour's or your butcher's. After a while, you too want these guys just to shut up and go and walk the dog. For the most part, Mr Greenside does best in the few stories in which he leaves men behind.
