Four-year-old Victor falls in love with six-year-old Janice, a disturbed girl from an abusive home, and is rapidly sucked into an alluring vortex of love and madness. SANITY'S BANE follows Victor... More > through a real-life science fiction adventure, unrequited love, unwholesome ruminations on death, a cross-country trek as a fugitive from the rich & powerful, the search for and discovery of a literary hero/ghost, and strange encounters with the insect kingdom. Elizabeth Ruiz, author of the acclaimed play, "Death By Survival" writes, “We are all misfits—but not all misfits are the same. Some, like Victor in Sanity’s Bane, help us to fall in love with life despite the hardships. Sanity’s Bane is both highbrow and down-to-earth, dark yet full of hope. It paints poetic pictures, waxes philosophical, and tells a story which is both moving and hilarious. Sanity’s Bane is a reminder that the love we feel is ours forever.”< Less
