Hurry Down Sunshine

by Michael Greenberg (Other Press 2008. 238 pages.)

An excellent memoir—written by the father of a 15-year old daughter about her onset of bipolar disorder and its impact on their extended, blended family. His description of life on a psychiatric ward is exceptional: marked by critical insight and occasionally dark humor. He describes the uncertainty that marks the process of treatment and recovery, which will recur throughout his daughter’s life.
