Greenhouse is a meandering novel and although there are uite a few happenings throughout the narrative not much actually happens per se and nor oes it need to Lobbi s Dream Save Do: Life is Short, Live Your Dream daily negotiations of uotidian responsibilities are so sweetly related that something as simple as makinginner can become a rich humorous and illustrative moment From Brian FitzGibbon
