The sections I’ve been posting from my latest book, “Withholding,” have for the most part not been edited yet, and they do not appear in the order they do in the book. Also, portions of the book which could pile unwanted trouble onto my head, have been largely censored.
The book is enormous. If we go by the formula that a typical adult-sized book has 250 words per printed page, this behemoth would run over 928 printed pages. Obviously, I need to cut it. Though the book covers events from 1980 to the present day, the second half of it is taken up by events of the last eleven years, when my financial, career, and personal problems spun out of control, and I descended into serious mental illness.
I post these excerpts mostly to give my site needed content, as the events of my current life don’t make for very interesting reading.
