Absolutely fascinating. In the winter/spring of 2009, up and coming New York Post journalist Susannah Cahalan begins to feel and act strangely - displaying symptoms of paranoia and eventually, psychosis. She winds up in the epilepsy wing of a New York hospital for a month - a month she has no memory of. With her health rapidly declining and her family (and doctors) at a loss, the fight for her life begins. Now safely on the other side of her mysterious illness, Cahalan uses her journalistic chops to tell her story. This is a brave and enlightening work - highly recommended! ~ Reviewed by Sarah Walcott
