As a work of fiction, I can see why a publisher wouldn't take it--as it was written. But if the publishing industry still bothered to put effort into fixing up books, I think this could easily have been marketed as a modern-day One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. Then, the fact that it was even partially autobiographical would have been intriguing--and thus exploitable. It's sad that this man was so desperate to sell his book that he was willing to lie, but honestly, I would have signed this book light years before I would have signed The Da Vinci Code.
