About the Edition

More than thirty years after the publication of his acclaimed memoir The Eden Express, Mark Vonnegut continues his remarkable story in this searingly funny, iconoclastic account of coping with mental illness, finding his calling as a pediatrician, and learning that willpower isn"t nearly enough. Here is the world after Mark was released from a mental hospital to find his family forever altered. After nineteen rejections, Mark was accepted to Harvard Medical School, where he gained purpose, a life, and some control over his condition. Ultimately a tribute to the small, daily, and positive parts of a life interrupted by bipolar disorder, this is a wise, unsentimental, and inspiring book that will resonate with generations of readers.--From publisher description.
