With an introduction by André Salomon”, he is the only one in the literature of manic depression for his acts of bravery, brilliance and beauty.”Oliver Sacks, I’ve gotten used to my spirit of being my best friend.Now, all of a sudden, my mind was turned on me: he laughed at me for my insipid enthusiasm; he laughed at all my crazy plans; he found nothing interesting or pleasant or useful anymore.Dr. Kay Redfield Jamison is one of the world’s foremost specialists in manic-depressive psychosis (Bipolar Disorder) and has experienced his terror and cruel treatment at first hand.While pursuing her career in medicine, she was affected by the same exhilarating ups and downs that struck many of her patients.From her early childhood jubilation to the anxiety that dominated her adult life, she has paintings of a journey through her own mind, and those of others.A Fury of the Spirit is a definitive examination of manic depression on both sides: the doctor and patient, the therapist and healed him.A classic of the memory of enormous frankness and courage, it abounds in the spirit and wisdom of its creator.
