Matt was a small-town Christian boy when he met with a number of unlikely twists and turns that took him far from his obedient, omnivorous origins.
Part memoir and part travelog, interspersed with essays, musings, and tips, Losing My Religions takes you on a journey of true love, crushing betrayals, and near-death and near-marriage experiences.
Catholicism, chronic pain, consciousness, depression, disability, drugs, free will, photography, sex, sociology, Sportsball!, and suicide are just some of what Matt deals with in 54 years, covered in the book in just 31 days. In these pages, you will live May 2022 with him, traveling across Europe and the Southwestern United States to hear how he became an atheist, father of a non-binary child, a hated and hunted former vegan, and survivor of accidents and illnesses that haven’t killed him. Yet.
Losing My Religions shows that on his life's journey, Matt changes his mind, discovers three tips everyone should know, and finds the first key to happiness. (No joke.) Arriving home from this month of travels, he is still a cranky old man who should never have been born, broken from lung to heart to neck to jaw to nose. But traveling with his soulmate showed him it is still possible to be “so happy it’s scary” while wearing clothes.
