Josh Roseman’s ‘Greener’ is basically a relationship story and the pressures such things come under while both parties come under the pressure of showing they’re clean before they’re allowed to touch. I didn’t find this a particularly pleasant story to read either in its characters or in its assumptions about the society its set in.
He’s right. It’s not a particularly pleasant story. I don’t think any of the characters (except perhaps the kids and the escort) are ones you can really root for. But then, I wrote it that way on purpose.
