ALRIGHT: Solving the Problem of Living
Acclaimed storyteller Nisha Coleman (Self-Exile, Cornichon) spins a yarn of nail-biting, heart-wrenching, darkly comedic adventures as she gets locked in the Madrid train station with a stray cat, is rescued by the Princess Bride's Westley while busking in Halifax, and saves a young woman from a brush with death in Montreal. Through these true-life stories, Coleman delves boldly into themes of mental illness and suicide, and attempts to “solve the problem of living” by learning to be Alright with being Alive.
