Multcolib My Librarian Karen E: The examined life
Annotation:Jennifer Traig is hilarious! Her first book, Devil in the Details, was a trip through her childhood of obsessive religiosity and this memoir chronicles her hypochondria through the historical lens of hypochondria. You will laugh in the midst of learning everything there is to know about the subject of hypochondria!
Annotation:One of the best portrayals of the dilemmas faced by a creative person suffering from bipolar disorder. As Ellen puts it, "Who gets to be crazy-brilliant, and who's just crazy-crazy?"
Annotation:Nancy Bachrach's mother was the center of the universe from all poles of the bipolar world and then she suffered a traumatic brain injury. The story of how both Nancy and her mother survived.
Annotation:A powerful graphic novel-memoir, this is the story of Alison's father, a historic preservation expert and obsessive restorer of the family's Victorian house, a third-generation funeral home director, a high school English teacher, an icily distant parent, and a closeted homosexual and Alison's search to try to understand him.
