Sit Down And Have A Beer Again is a collection of poems and short stories penned by Greg Wyss. it is divided into three parts, with parts one and two including poetry and short stories published in two different small press magazines since 1977, and part three offering excerpts from Wyss' novel When Life Was Like A Cucumber. It tells of a young man's story of self-discovery and sexual awakening in post-sixties America as he tries to find a place for himself in the world. Wyss' collection is about growing up as a young man during a time of great cultural revolution shaped by the Vietnam war and the advent of the hippie movement and sexual awakening that defined a generation. These poems and short stories cover slice-of-life stories experienced by a youngster of that era.
A healthy dose of nostalgia and free-minded spirit flavor the verses of the poems and poetic stories told in Sit Down And Have A Beer Again. Greg Wyss has a way with words and, through some enthralling poetry, brings to life a colorful period in American history that changed the course of a generation of young adults, giving them a voice to discover themselves and carve a place in this world. There is a sense of beauty to Wyss' writing that transports you to another era, making you feel how those from an older generation felt when they were young. The universal topics discussed within the pages of this collection will appeal to a diverse range of readers. Highly recommended.
