Off The Reservation: Stories I Almost Took to the Grave and Probably Should Have

Equal parts shocking and moving, Off the Reservation: Stories I Almost Took to the Grave and Probably Should Have is an absurdist confessional memoir, accurately detailing the reckless hijinks of a bipolar alcoholic with borderline personality disorder. This stranger-than-fiction true story spans over three decades, as Michael recounts his tales with wincing honesty. Eventually, the maniacal nights of booze, drugs, and sex give way to rude awakenings in empty rooms, jail cells, and beds of snow from a failed suicide by Mother Nature. Rossi learns most of his lessons—gradually, reluctantly, painstakingly—without imposing them on anyone. Thankfully for us, these unapologetic, darkly comic tales haven’t been taken to the grave just yet.
