About the Event
Against the starkly beautiful backdrop of Anchorage, Alaska, where she grew up, she weaves a fearless account of the shapeless thief--the schizophrenia--that kept her mother immersed in a world of private delusion and later manifested in her brother, ultimately claiming his life. Composed of exquisite, self-contained chapters that, cumulatively, take us through three generations of this adventurous, artistic, and often haunted family, The Edge of Every Day is an inquiry into our assumptions about how the mind can and should work--and a referendum on the treatment of the mentally ill in our society.
