THERAPISTS GONE WILD – Jonathan is a young mental health therapist, fresh from the ivory tower, who naively embarks on an eye-opening and destructive experience within a dysfunctional healthcare system. He navigates through many difficult situations, both personal and professional. A cold break-up with his girlfriend, coupled with difficult client sessions and a cynical supervisor, make matters worse for Jonathan. Trouble intensifies when one client, a professional criminal, exploits him. Through a series of tragic events, Jonathan ends up in a mental state of anhedonia and eventual psychosis, a “client” in the very system he once passionately believed in, that now traps him in a schizophrenic hell. The plot is a reflection on societal collapse, satirizing the blind faith that is so often placed in therapists and the health care system.
Hello folks. Want to let you know that we picked Thursday February 25, 2021 as the official release date for Lisa Carver’s amazing book THE PAHRUMP REPORT. Typically we’d be having a huge party and going on a book tour and all sorts of fun stuff, but the Coof got us down. Lisa is planning a move to Botswana soon. I am freezing my ass off in Rhode Island. Regardless, the book will be available and we will have to figure out a way to celebrate together!
“This is a very easy and no fail recipe for a yummy short stories collection. It might take long to make, but it is quite good to read!” – Martha from Cleveland
“For pairing, you can’t go wrong with a medium bodied Cotes du Rhone with Jeffrey’s book. Within the Rhone is a peppercorn and spice note that would go well with the spice of his short stories, both ending with a satin finish.” – Udo Garten from Munich
