My Mom Has MS, is the second book Longo had published this year. It was published by Books and Boos Press.

He’s been doing this since 2008, when Renee was diagnosed with the disease.41yzKctUdpL__SX258_BO1,204,203,200_

All of the stories in the anthology are new, with the exception of one from Longo (“Old Man’s Winter”), which was expanded and changed from an earlier version. Each story in Insanity Tales features a character whose actions could very well be perceived as crazy—and in some cases, they are.
