PP New York YR 2008 SN 9781602392939 1602392935 9781602397682 1602397686 AB "One day, Richard LeMieux had a happy marriage, a palatial home, and took $40,000 Greek vacations. The next, he was living out of a van with only his dog, Willow, for company. This astonishingly frank memoir tells the story of one man's resilience in the face of economic disaster. Penniless, a failed suicide, estranged from his family, and living "the vehicular lifestyle" in Washington state, LeMieux chronicles his journey from the Salvation Army kitchens to his days with "C"--A philosopher in a homeless man's clothing--to his run-ins with Pastor Bob and other characters he meets on the streets. Along the way, he finds time to haunt public libraries and discover his desire to write."--Publisher's website. An account of the author's descent from his luxurious family life to homelessness describes the events that prompted his estrangement from his family and failed suicide, and recounts his visits to Salvation Army kitchens.
