After the successful publication of her poetry book titled “Orphan Dreams,” author Susan H. McIntyre makes an entrancing comeback with her latest, thought-provoking compilation, Living in the Theater of the Absurd. This book is a collection of experiences that belong to the theater of the absurd—a showcase of the author’s life experiences.

Living in the Theater of the Absurd: Chronic Illness presents a unique look at adapting to chronic illness. With an active imagination, an outrageous sense of humor, and personal experience with chronic illnesses, the author provides an alternative to living as a victim. The first half of the book presents a new perspective and examples of thriving with specific chronic conditions. The second half of the book addresses issues that are common in all chronic illnesses. Household chores, clutter, family life, friendships, thought life, and more are addressed with both humor and solutions. This book empowers the reader to go beyond diagnosis and create a new lifestyle.

McIntyre has designed this book to introduce readers to her world in a unique, exciting and inspiring way. She makes this as an invitation for readers to enjoy the way one part of life pokes into another, creating distortions and absurdities that make sense only if they live with it. Living in the Theater of the Absurd is a must read for those who are searching for a good read, to laugh, be inspired and acquire knowledge.

This book will be featured at the 2013 American Library Association Midwinter Book Exhibit in Seattle, Wash. on June 25 – 28, 2013.
