I had been writing poetry throughout my illness. As I started to recover, I turned to children's story writing, but found that many of themes I was developing - themes hidden in metaphor - needed to be fleshed out as real, adult level ideas. That was when I knew I needed to write "Dazed and Fatigued," which is part catharsis, part epiphany, and at the same time offers a fast-paced, hard- driving, yet entertaining story that gets to the core of some very critical issues facing everyone in society today.From the Back Cover:
Where do you turn there are no answers, no cures, no potions, no actions you can take to dig yourself out of a hole you did not create, never anticipated, or even imagined you could find yourself in?
As we head into the 21st Century, we are witnessing more and more young people succumbing to a host of auto-immune related illnesses brought on by the stresses of a post-modern industrial era- a high paced, highly competitive workforce, overcrowded living environments, and polluted, chemically contaminated air, food and water resources.
In 'Dazed & Fatigued In The Toxic 21st Century', MArk Hall offers an astonishing first person experience recovering from chronic fatigue syndrome. This is a story about picking up the pieces left behind on the way to adulthood, and learning to love and accept yourself in a toxic world. Written in an alternative voice that is raw and at times wildly spontaneous, the story weaves poetry with ironic insights and commentaries on everything from politics to music and literature. It is the classic tale of the heroes journey- a fall from grace into wilderness, and the quest to find enlightenment on the other side. Most of all, it is an inspiring story that demonstrates the resolution and ability to recover and find peace, after years of personal crisis.
