When the average-American life you've worked so hard to build disintegrates, when hope dies, what else do you do (if you don't self-terminate) but write an autobiography-Good News For Lazy, Psychotic Sinners.
In defining "lazy, psychotic sinner", Alice walks the reader through the process that brought her to enlightenment as an LPS-experiences, her thoughts about them and her efforts to transcend their effects. Surviving child abuse, becoming a born-again Christian, burning out and being struck by long-term physical illness are identified as the main causes of her eventual LPS status, but Alice suspects that there is an entire subculture of LPSes out there-people with different experiences but who also sometimes wonder if their last chance for happiness or success has come and gone. The author's article contained in Good News. "Last Chance Gas-or-Anatomy of a Suicide", typifies the LPS's perspective of results when accepting help of the "okay variety".
This psychological and spiritual drama includes medical mysteries, legal arguments, advice for other LPSes and the author's documentation of her efforts to succeed and of being a committed Christian. It concludes with a four-page, jaw-dropping psyche evaluation which the author uses to support her claim of being a lazy, psychotic sinner.
Perhaps you'll cry-and wonder if your ultimate fate is the LPS designation. But as you identify with the perspectives of an LPS, you, too, will laugh when you learn of your other options in Good News For Lazy, Psychotic Sinners.
A Reader's Review
"You are about to read a book like no other. I've known Alice for years. Her heart and soul lie here in these pages. I don't know if she would have ever gotten this book published without that extra motivation that we all need sometimes of wanting to make a great change. Her motivation did not come in the form of the pain of living where none of us could normally stand. It came in the form of the energy she built whenever she fought hard to stay positive in spite of that. But the book you're about to read has little to do with that. This book is about the rest of her life, and her thoughts on our lives."-Gered L. Kauffman
