A very inventive way to show how a manic depressive mind thinks and offers insight and help.

Excellent and hilarious journey through the intersection of gender, mental illness, and sexual orientation. Demonstrates very well and yet non-pedantically the fact that no issues are isolated. ( )

Ellen writes about when she was first diagnosed and her long journey to get her bipolar disorder under control with medication. She talks about other famous artists that have been diagnosed with disorders and her fear that treating her disorder will ruin her creativity.


This books information is definitely important. I think that people with mental disorders will appreciate being able to relate to her journey and I think it could be important reading for those that have just been diagnosed as well. ( )

Searching to make sense of the popular concept of the "crazy artist," Ellen found inspiration from the lives and work of other artist and writers who suffered from mood disorders, including Vincent van Gogh, Georgia O'Keeffe, William Styron, and Sylvia Plath.… (more)
