A studio executive leaves his family and travels the world giving free reign to the bipolar disorder he's been forced to hide for 20 years."e;Juliann Garey writes with stark, lucid power about the tumbling journey into madness and the agonizing climb back out."e;--Brian Yorkey, book and lyrics for Next to NormalIn her tour-de-force first novel, Juliann Garey takes us inside the restless mind, ravaged heart, and anguished soul of Greyson Todd, a successful Hollywood studio executive who leaves his wife and young daughter and for a decade travels the world giving free rein to the bipolar disorder he's been forced to keep hidden for almost 20 years. The novel intricately weaves together three timelines: the story of Greyson's travels (Rome, Israel, Santiago, Thailand, Uganda); the progressive unraveling of his own father seen through Greyson's eyes as a child; and the intimacies and estrangements of his marriage. The entire narrative unfolds in the time it takes him to undergo twelve 30-second electroshock treatments in a New York psychiatric ward. This is a literary page-turner of the first order, and a brilliant inside look at mental illness.From the Hardcover edition.
