Rubber Side Down Follow-Up

Recently, I reviewed Rubber Side Down: The Biker Poetry Anthology. I recently a lovely email follow-up from Marc Goldfinger - author of one of my favorite poems in the book, "The State Trooper & the Biker Get Tested." I mentioned that Marc is a substance abuse counselor and he told me a little about his work.

Marc has written a book called Essays On Major Mental Illness with A Co-Occurring Substance Use Disorder or What Came First: The Chicken or The White Horse. The book is available through an organization called Give Us Your Poor - a group that is working to end homelessness in America.

The book is a little outside my areas of expertise, but Marc is obviously dedicated to this cause and brings a lot of life experience to this issue. You can get more information on the book at their website.

The author's book on mental illness and drug abuse sounds interesting. It's something I come across in my profession quite often. I will have to look for it. Thanks for the heads up, Avis!
