Chenille Books Author Spotlight


Author: Zack Bonnie

Title: Dead, Insane, or in Jail: A CEDU Memoir

Publisher: Not with the Program

Zack’s well-written tale does a remarkable job of recalling his thinking and his feelings as he gradually internalizes the madness of his everyday life and the hopelessness of his situation. In the tradition of “Darkness At Noon,” Zack’s history puts the reader into the life that too many “survivors” experienced, and he does this in a finely crafted page-turner.

  • Are you looking for accountability?
  • Would some deadlines get you focused?
  • Want some structure so you know what the next step is? And the one after that?
