"The Anti-Joan Dynamic" is excerpted from a larger work, "Don't Trust Alice," which is unpublished. This is a first person account of eight months of homelessness in 2005. The psychological journey in the centerpiece of the book gives a concise, horrifying rendering of a specific time, years earlier, when a fuller picture of my fate first became apparent. Reading any of this work gives more than enough info about me as you shall see. Thank you.I hope you enjoy it!
