Sure, I’ll just gather up all the blog posts I published over the last four years of my mother’s life when she was batshit crazy and mean as hell and make a book out of them. Except that I was out of my mind then, too, which is kind of the point, so I’ve had to do a lot of editing. Funny how having someone trying to kill you affects real-time storytelling. The HELEN CHRONICLES: When Your Mother Falls Apart is almost ready, however. I just have to add some notes and check that no one will be arrested. I wouldn’t care too much if they were, but once you let your conscience in the door, you’re screwed.
