A Tale Of Schizophrenia, From The Inside

Feb 1, 2019

Sandy Allen had always been aware of the family's hermit uncle, Bob, who lived in the California desert. Out of the blue, a long handwritten manuscript landed on Sandy's desk.

It was Bob's autobiographical tale of his life with schizophrenia. Sandy polished up the work into a book called A Kind of Mirraculas Paradise: A True Story About Schizophrenia

The author worked to translate the often incomprehensible work into a rare portrait of mental illness from the inside.
