This is an autobiographical cartoon with full colour slides and speech bubbles. It deals with homelessness, psychosis, and the criminal justice system in the UK. While the narrative begins with a crisis of unemployment and home repossession, many would think of the descent into mental illness, having no home, and ending up in custody, as a poor outcome for someone who was known to the National Health Service to have severe and enduring problems. But the outcome portrayed here was preferable to the alternative of a male dormitory in an asylum, with regular mind-bending, humiliating and debilitating injections in the butt, and menial work in an Industrial Therapy unit with just enough pay to buy tobacco.
