Clean Alternatives, by Brian Dykstra, a no-holds-barred satire on corporate America, is about an environmentalist's fight against a toxin-spreading megacorporation. Dykstra's impassioned characters wage war on each other with the most powerful weapons in their arsenal, words. Loyalties shift, sex, love and political agendas clash. But do words have a chance against all that cash? Dykstra's signature rapid-fire style crackles as he takes on corporate narcissism, the meaning of love, the corruption of politics and the elusiveness of enlightenment in this dark-age of the almighty dollar.
