Make sure that you are strapped in good for the roller coaster ride of your life to a world of the bizarre. As your tour guide, the narrator, Moe Sr., bares his naked soul; raw and uncut, as his faith, will, and values are tested at every turn as he feels his way through the maze we call, life. In this spellbinder, which is laced with satire and suspense, he addresses the subject of the dysfunctional family. This book is crammed with drama; his relationship with Vera and her family; with his first wife, Thelma; his struggles as a single parent; arresting his own demons; and his liberation from a grave of death and ignorance. This book is a story of devotion and deceit, suicide, alcoholism, the occult, murder for hire, and incarceration and redemption. Furthermore, this book is a story of love and hatred, of the unloved who betray those whom they pretend to love, confession and forgiveness, and eventually, overcoming the odds. On the cover, he is draped in the American flag that is fashioned in a straightjacket.This symbolism, he states, is not a condemnation of America, but a stark reminder to her of her own dysfunctional behavior; past and present, and to also remind her that the people are the physicians ("We the people"), forever prescribing the Constitution as a prescription for healing. Finally, this book is a testament to the spirit of the human condition and the power of change. "Cogito Ergo Sum!" "I think. Therefore I must exist!"-Descartes.
