A Kind of Mirraculas Paradise
A True Story About SchizophreniaBook - 2018
"Sandra Allen did not know her uncle Bob very well. As a child, she had been told he was 'crazy,' that he had spent time in mental hospitals while growing up in Berkeley in the '60s and '70s ... Then in 2009 Bob mailed her his autobiography. Typewritten in all caps, a stream of error-riddled sentences over sixty, single-spaced pages, the often incomprehensible manuscript proclaimed to be a 'true story' about being 'labeled a psychotic paranoid schizophrenic,' and arrived with a plea to help him get his story out to the world. In [this book], Allen translates her uncle's autobiography, ... creating a ... coming-of-age story while sticking ... to the facts as he shared them"-- Provided by publisher.
