"My Insanity Defense" chronicles the travails of Joe Nelson, a comic, tragic, hero who stumbles on to the truth of his daughter's murder when, at the lowest point of his life, he is introduced to a plucky stray terrier. The story is narrated by Joe himself after the pursuit of the killer leads him to become framed for a terrible crime and his lawyer tells him his only hope is to be declared legally insane. As the story unfolds, Joe begins to wonder if he really is crazy
