Product description

The Contortionist's Handbook, a novel by Craig Clevenger. Published by MacAdam/Cage Publishing, San Francisco. 
Hardback, in very good condition with a slight bend to the top edge of the back dust cover. 200 pages.

The story of John Dolan Vincent, a talented young forger with a proclivity for mathematics and drug addiction. A misguided attempt at self medicating his severe migraines lands him in a mental hospital awaiting a psychiatric evaluation - not being his first time. He knows that to be examined twice is to ensure being institutionalised as a suicide risk. So he draws upon his skills as a "contortionist" - an inventor of new identities - and makes a new "life" for himself. In John Dolan Vincent's world, the truth wont set you free - It will lock you up or get you killed.
