Shorts : Stories About Alcohol, Asperger Syndrome, and God Paperback / softback

Description

Tessie Regan's collection of short stories, poems and quirky illustrations reveal the world as seen through the haze of alcohol addiction, the eccentricity of Asperger's and the ups and downs of an unconventional spiritual journey.

Her honest and witty observations tell of moments of elation, confusion and hopeless desperation felt throughout her life, from the backbreaking pursuit of $100 in 'Lawnmower' to contemplating the start of her alcoholism at age 13 in 'The Jumping Off Place.' These brief, insightful accounts paint the truthful, warm-hearted, and wryly humorous portrait of a soul in search of reconciliation.

This collection is essential reading for anyone on the autism spectrum dealing with alcoholism, substance addiction or mental health issues, and for their friends and families, as well as the professionals working with them.
