Oh Lauren Slater! ((face palm)) What has she done with this book? I loved Lying: A Metaphorical Memoir. I adored it. Her writing was delicious and whimsical and daring and it was a swirling dream-like experience to read. And Prozac Diary was a fascinating and well written chronicle of the early years of anti-depressants.

What happened here?

She has the same beautiful prose and yet it annoyed me. Why?! Maybe she came across as condescending about her patients. Maybe she overly romanticized the schizophrenics she wrote about. Maybe she is just a little full of herself. Urgh!
