    It is pleasing to know that Matt has overcome his poor self-image via the medium of comedy. That is one very good approach, as it has shown that he can be successful and does have value others can and do recognize. There is no doubt that a poor self-image can ruin the life of a person who otherwise would have achieved at least a typical degree of fulfillment and contentment. That is one of the salient points of my recently released biographical novel, Broken Saint. It is based on my forty-year friendship with a gay, bipolar man, and chronicles his internal and external struggles as he battles for stability and acceptance (of himself and by others). More information on the book is available at
