John Buchanan-Nicol’s unique stream-of-consciousness memoir is a comical journey through the many coercive relationships that have made him, shaped him, and often nearly broken him. Yet having just survived a totalitarian marriage, and now single and in recovery, he still feels destined to repeat the cycle all over again. Just why is explored with insightful introspections and the telling of his many poignant tales in what is essentially a sadomasochistic odyssey. Starting in current-day England and finishing some 20 years previous in San Francisco, Janus will make you laugh, cry, think and see...that not all dictatorships are governments! And that to render your own power redundant, it’s enough to wish for your own subjugation, as you give it up to the one-party state, that Dear Leader, in exchange for the anesthetic of absolutism and a false utopia.
