'Garbology' Galleys, First Review Are Here!

You know it's almost a book when the bound galleys thump on the doorstep. I really love the trashy montage Avery did with the cover of Garbology: Our Dirty Love Affair with Trash.

With the galleys comes the first review of Garbology, from the trade journal Kirkus. I'm happy to report the reviewer calls my upcoming narrative about the American way of waste -- and the families, businesses and communities who are finding a way back from it -- "surprising, even shocking" and "an important addition to the environmentalist bookshelf."

Garbology hits bookstores and e-tailers April 19, 2012. I plan on talking plenty of trash before then, so stay tuned.
