By Michael Speechley
Meet Harvey. Although Harvey already has a heap of things, more than he could possibly use, he wants more. And the thing Harvey wants? An Orange 430. He might not know what the Orange 430 does, or even what it is, but he sure knows he wants one. In his wonderfully funny and clever debut, Michael Speechley explores the idea of consumerism and the ongoing desire to have the latest or the newest or the next best thing!
