I REGRET EVERYTHING
A modern love story, I Regret Everything confronts the oceanic uncertainty of what it means to be alive, and in love. Jeremy Best, a Manhattan-based trusts and estates lawyer, leads a second life as published poet Jinx Bell. To his boss’s daughter, Spaulding Simonson, Jeremy, thirty-three, is already halfway to dead. When Spaulding, an aspiring nineteen year-old writer, discovers Mr. Best’s alter ego, the two become bound by a devotion to poetry and an awareness that time is limited.
A skilled satirist, Greenland creates finely wrought characters that reveal the complexity of the human condition – at its very best, and utter worst. I Regret Everything explores happiness and heartache with a healthy dose of skepticism, and an understanding that the reality of love encompasses life, death, and iambic pentameter.
