Grief Species BUY NOW

A previously ambition-less writer (Pike, Logan) lands a job as a newspaper reporter in rural upstate Pennsylvania, only to find his dream job is in dramatic decline. Over the course of a year, through being a journalist and traveling to three distinct weddings, Pike is forced to confront immigration identity, the American career path and the fall of bachelor parties. Composed in “Speed Prose” with a heavy concentration on humor, satire and lust, Grief Species offers no outlook to the future.
