After writing two novels, the author needed therapy. One restless night, his dream self posed a question: Why not immerse yourself in laughter for two years? When his real self woke up, he did just that. The heightened state of delirium achieved during the writing of Alive or Dead is evident from the get go, nor does it wane in the latter pages of the manual.
The author is a retired high-school English teacher. His passions are bowling, golf, and road races. He resides in Resaca, Georgia, where Sherman’s forces met significant resistance as they marched toward the sea.
