It's really Uncle Bob's story. Sandy Allen conveyed the writing of Uncle Bob to the world in the book A Kind of Mirraculas Paradise: A True Story About Schizophrenia.

Much of the book is Bob's own writing about schizophrenia, which entered his life in his teens and came back for visits in the decades afterward.

The book was published two years ago, and we revisit our interview with Sandy Allen about uncle Bob's experiences.
