“This book is a true story about me and my changes. It could help you. So if you want help, seek it. If you’re in recovery, keep it.”
This line finishes off Art Wedmore’s introduction in his autobiographical account, Self Inflicted Death Sentence .
Self Inflicted Death Sentence puts a refreshing twist to autobiographies and memoirs as Wedmore recounts his shady past through dactylic verses. As an inspiring and entertaining account of the author’s addiction to sex and alcohol as well as living through deceit and betrayals, the autobiographical narrative urges readers to take control of their lives and not merely go with the flow of peer pressure, circumstances, and a society swamped with the proverbial smoke and mirrors.
Wedmore’s Self Inflicted Death Sentence provides a poetic approach to the customary autobiographical accounts. Beneath Wedmore’s lyrical verses is a message worth spreading around; that despite the lowest of lows, one can still find redemption at the end of the day.
