“This is what I know: Worms? Don’t think about anything two inches beneath the surface of the earth. No one wonders what’s down here. All they look is up, up, up. What’s out there? What’s up there? No one looks down.”

Two naïve 50-year-olds meet in a garden. Thousands of tunnels dug by hand beneath them. A new comical tragical fantasy from Gracie Gardner (Pussy Sludge, Athena).
