THE HOSPITAL SUITE by John Porcellino

My new book collects three all-new stories dealing with my history of physical and mental problems. “The Hospital Suite” recounts the summer of 1997, when I was repeatedly hospitalized with a mysterious abdominal ailment; “1998” covers the fallout from my surgery in ’97; and “True Anxiety” details my struggles with anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder, from childhood through the present day. Surprisingly, not as depressing as you might think, with plenty of big laffs. Includes bonus comics and notes in the back. 264 pages, approx 6″ x 9″, two-color covers, b+w interiors, softcover.
