About the Book

45 Thought Crimes conveys a lineage of resistance and places the reader squarely in the driver's seat of their own destiny. During the Reagan and Bush years, author Lynn Breedlove tried to ignore the political climate to focus on his
own self destruction. When that didn’t work, he got sober and committed his life to art. After publishing his first two books and spending a career on tour, life took an unexpected turn. Breedlove spent the next decade caring and grieving for his mother, and founding / running a nonprofit to serve his LGBT community. But when the world threatens to end, the only moment that matters becomes now. Breedlove began writing this book the morning after the 2016 election, at the dawn of the coup. Newly in love and acutely aware of what
was at stake, he questioned and confirmed life lessons learned, with Prince, Bowie, Leonard Cohen, and his ancestors as muses.

About the Book
