Fear of Milk

I haven't read this book yet, but it's high on my list.

From my friend Carol who had the book published:

In Fear of Milk, John Penn turns the American dream of “country boy finds success in the Big City” on its ear. Rich Flynn is a southern WASP from a wealthy family, but the trappings of success—independence, a home, self-determination—elude him when he moves to New York On his Dante-esque journey through hospitals, institutions, and homeless shelters, he provides rare insider observations of psych wards and rehab programs that are by turns satirical and poignant. Unexpected flashes of humor and hope enliven this grim landscape, as Rich learns to make lemonade from the lemons of his life.
