Greg Wyss is being recognized for an evocative work of fiction that brings the personal, social and political hangover of the early 1970's into sharp focus when a young man is inspired by an angel to seek his place in the world. "When Life Was Like a Cucumber" is a humorous, surreal and unpredictable story of self-exploration, healing, liberation and growth.
