Reviews

"The classic case study of schizophrenia that set the stage for reform. . . . Its insight, compassion, and humanity have much to teach us." --Andrew Solomon

"Compelling, mordantly funny. . . . [A] beautifully written chronicle." --The New York Times

"A brilliantly documented chronicle of a young woman's long struggle with schizophrenia." --The New Republic

"Susan Sheehan has committed an extraordinary act of journalism. . . . She brings relentless intelligent attention to bear on a particular case, a journalistic practice that almost always results in new and disturbing insights into those mindless generalities and prejudice and certitudes we tend to carry around with us." --The Washington Post Book World "Sheehan is tenacious, observant and unsentimental. The history of a single patient leads us into a maze of understaffed institutions, bureaucratic fumbling, trial-and-error treatment and familial incomprehension. Though Sheehan keeps herself invisible, her sympathy is palpable." --Newsweek "[A] monumental piece of reportage. . . . A model of close-up journalism: totally convincing, unsentimental yet obviously compassionate, rigorously plain." --Kirkus Reviews
