Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

Columnist and author Greenberg's heartbreaking and inspiring memoir details his daughter's downfall into insanity one hot summer in New York City. Greenberg writes with a raw passion and intensity, capturing the essence of every detail and event as if they were occurring in real time as he types. His reading is a heartfelt and honest attempt to relate the experiences with as much restrained emotion as possible, offering it as part headline news story, part editorial. With perfect pitch, tone and pacing, Greenberg is a talented narrator, who will surely capture and hold listeners' attention. An Other Press hardcover (Reviews, June 23). (Sept.) Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

From Library Journal:

In this hyperreal reenactment of his daughter's psychotic breakdown one summer in New York, Times Literary Supplement columnist Greenberg reclaims the word crazy- thrown around a little too lightly in our culture. The prose is so fluid that it transports us into the author's head, making his shock, fear, and love our own. (LJ 7/08) (c) Copyright 2010.
