Product description


"Mitchell has traveled across the dark and divine landscape of his brilliant son’s mental illness, all the way to the ultimate loss: his son’s suicide at the age of thirty-eight. A scholar, activist, and experimenter in his own right, he guides us through the journey with special knowledge and sensitivity. He is attuned both to the philosophical entanglements of mental illness and to its daily grind, its crushing brutality and its periods of soaring, other-worldly energy. Mitchell looks beyond the well-known symptoms of schizophrenia to the particularity of his family, his son’s individual consciousness, and his own struggle, as a father, to understand. Written with love, bewilderment, sorrow, and admiration, Mental Traveler is a valuable addition to the literature of psychosis and the toll this mysterious illness takes on loved ones, left to make sense of it all."
