This book, written by a schizophrenic who was finally able to get some of her life back when the drug clozapine was introduced, helped me understand more fully what it is like for those I know who struggle with this terrible disease. It is well written, but not necessarily easy to read, because the disease is unrelenting in nature and the voices terrible and repetitive. (I googled the author because I wanted to see if there was a photograph of her, and came across a schizophrenic girl who filmed herself making comments on and reading aloud parts of the book. That was harrowing.)
