A Special Note About the Book

This book, at its core, is about mental health. Recovering from trauma is a journey with twists, turns, and abrupt endings. A lot of the time, recovery means questioning the various “narrators” we encounter. Other times it means remembering those who didn’t get to finish their story. The author believes that absurdism is the closest approximation to the truth that art has to offer and the best way to understand and process the most difficult journeys in life.

When we can laugh at it, then we can truly conquer the hardest truths.
