"All art is autobiographical. The pearl is the oyster's autobiography.." according to Federico Fellini.

Much of Johnny (Jack) Riggs' childhood and teen years are based on my experiences. I'm in a seemingly unending process of writing a book on culture war, in which I elaborate of some of this; but in light of the recent high-profile suicides of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain, I feel compelled to speak up on these subjects. I'm familiar from youth with the inside of an observation room in a psychiatric ward. All the corners are rounded. Bed bolted to the floor. Heavy mesh screen over the window to the outside, if there is one. As I repeatedly say, I'm appalled that in the past four decades it seems that nothing has changed in how we deal with our fellow humans -- especially the young ones.

A very touching portrayal of human suffering.
