A memoir that very nicely illustrates many features of schizophrenia. The author is intelligent and well-spoken. Her difficulties with some kinds of judgment and insight come through in the authorial voice as well as in the narrative. A good memoir for teaching, I think, and I wish her well. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0987824449, Paperback)

When Quietness Came is the true story of a young woman studying neuroscience who, in her final undergraduate year, has a psychotic break, attempts suicide and ends up in hospital. Her struggles to get well and to pursue her PhD are described in this book. Her story is geared to people from a variety of backgrounds. As a neuroscientist, Erin reaches out to the medical community who need to hear this side of the patient. As a schizophrenic, she reaches out to others struggling with this disorder, hoping to draw alongside and offer empathy and hope. Finally, she wants the general public, family and friends of people with schizophrenia to be better able to understand and sympathize with those afflicted.
