The Center Cannot Hold:

That is the title of a new book by Elyn R. Saks, law professor at USC, and it seems now a psychology and psychiatry professor there as well.

I was very taken by the gripping narrative of this book. The subtitle is My Journey Through Madness. Here is one short review. Here is an excerpt.

Oliver Sacks liked it too. He called it "The most lucid and hopeful memoir of living with schizophrenia I have ever read."
