Write about the themes in Self Affirmation For The Dead? That's a complex task.

How about: an intimate encounter with Robert Eisner while he attempts to gain control over his emotional being for the first time in years following anti-depressant use.

Anger is one emotion that surfaces, as is anxienty - obviously - but they are not alone as Robert pushes his body and mind to the limit in two days.

I think the overiding theme is an abstract of escapism: how pockets of differing socioeconomic groups deal with the modern American psyche, belief system, hedonistic lifestyles and capitalist regimes that are thrust upon us everyday and that leave few in thier wake.
