᠒ [PDF]-Lawn Boy ᡣ E-Pub Author Jonathan Evison ᢓ ᠒ [PDF]-Lawn Boy ᡣ E-Pub Author Jonathan Evison ᢓ An Best Book of April 2018 Its a risky to assume that writers are writing about themselves, that their characters are built on the thoughts and feelings of their creators Maybe, though, its a smaller risk with Jonathan Evison His novels are generally small scale and personal humans tackling human problems, often against stacked odds and with inadequate skill sets Its not that were reading about the Evisons own experiences, but each book is an experiment in empathy, rising or falling with the strength of the connection he forges between his humans and the reader All About Lulu and The Revised Fundamentals of Caregiving are two that work best as both fiction and relatable stories, and his latest, Lawn Boy succeeds for the same reasons those books did As ever, the story is personal Mike Munoz is a young Chicano landscaper working in a gated, all white community near Bremerton, Washington, a few stone skips from Evisons own territory on the Olympic Peninsula His future, at first glance, is not expansive Munoz seems destined to a life on the margins, hemmed in by forces both external and internal class and race, bad judgment and resentment Dialogue is often the strength of Evisons stories, and theres a lot of it heredriving the story forward as Mike drives toward a future of his own design, regardless of its uncertainty and imperfections After all, the best gardens are wild, and a little bit dark Jon Foro, Book Review Eminently readable and deeply thought provoking, Evison s deceptively simple novel takes on tough issues such as race, sexual identity, and the crushing weight of American capitalism Mike Muoz, the 22 year old biracial Mexican and white narrator, has grown up dirt poor with his hardworking waiter mother and his brother, who is developmentally disabled The narrative follows Mike s attempts at several other jobs after he s fired from his lawn mowing gig while he works on his love life and tries to help out his family After Mike recounts a great disappointment involving his biological father in the first chapter, one of several themes emerges as Mike encounters several potential father figures often bosses , each with his own deeply flawed philosophy of life From the cutthroat capitalism of his first boss to the upper class cronyism of an old high school pal, each man personifies aspects of Mike s life that he cannot stand, even while he learns valuable lessons from them Meanwhile, other story lines fix on Mike s underdeveloped understanding of his sexuality, which is not helped by the rampant homophobia and sexism of his best friend, and his equally conflicted understanding of his ethnic identity Unfortunately, Evison s often infective enthusiasm for his preponderance of ideas weighs down the demands of the plot Nevertheless, the passion with which Mike and Evison share these ideas redeems the novel VERDICT Give this flawed but exciting coming of age story to teens eager to engage with heavy and timely political issues.Mark Flowers, Rio Vista Library, CA Lawn Boy Wikipedia Lawn is Phish s
