In the tradition of the of the classic short stories of Lydia Davis, Kurt Vonnegut, and Joy Williams, this singular collection explores the full range of human experience and behavior . . . both good and bad. At once compelling and provocative, Keith's writing takes the reader to places that only a truly vivid and original imagination could. Frequently disquieting in theme and plot, the stories within these covers invariably contain meaningful truths and lessons, and just as frequently do so in an uproariously humorous and deeply compassionate manner.

You Can Leave Anytime follows the true-life story of a 53-year-old Ivy-League-educated freelance writer and yoga teacher in a cozy suburb of Boston, who falls down a rabbit hole and checks himself into a rehab facility in Florida. For 3 months, he enters a strange new world of controlling therapists, burnt-out orderlies, and young junkies, many of whom are fresh out of jail. He navigates this new world of suburban gangstas and bizarre rules without judgment. A great network of friends, a Zen outlook, and a very dry sense of humor get him through his day. As he sobers up and gets his head glued on straight, he faces his biggest challenge of all--getting out.
