Becoming Absence after Cancer

from nothing and with nothing in mind

Mike Templeton is the author of recently published book The Chief of Birds (Erratum Press), a memoir reflecting on a life of addiction, incarceration and recovery. In the time that has passed since he published an essay with Becoming almost a year ago about dystopian despair in Ohio (54), Mike has come face-to-face with harsh reality once again, after being diagnosed with Cancer last year. We wanted to express our deepest regards to Mike, as a person and as an author; while the struggle is different this time around, he has written a text that reflects on being back in recovery again. We were touched to hear that he is doing well, and may live to suffer much longer
