From the author of the best-selling "Wasted", an astonishing dispatch from inside the belly of bipolar disease, reflecting major new insights.When Marya Hornbacher published her first book,"Wasted: AMemoir of Anorexia and Bulimia", she did not yet know thereason for her all-but-shattered young life. At age twenty-four, Hornbacher was diagnosed with Type 1 rapid-cycle bipolar, the most severe form of bipolar disease there is.In "Madness", in her trademark wry and utterly self-revealing voice, Hornbacher tells her new story. Through scenes of astonishing visceral and emotional power, she takes us inside her own desperate attempts to control violently careening mood swings by self-starvation, substance abuse, numbing sex, and self-mutilation. How Hornbacher fights her way up from a madness that all but destroys her, and what it is like to live in a difficult and sometimes beautiful life and marriage-wherebipolar always beckons-is at the heart of this brave and heart-stopping memoir."Madness" delivers the revelation that Hornbacher is not alone: there are millions of people in America struggling with a variety of disorders that may mask their true diagnosis of bipolar. Also, Hornbacher's fiercely self-aware portrait of her own bipolar as early as age four will powerfully change the current debate on whether bipolar in children exists.Ten years after Kay Redfield Jamison's "An Unquiet Mind", this storm of a memoir will provoke, educate, and move.
