This one hits close to home. Large Catholic family in Colorado Springs with a history of mental illness? I can relate. The Galvin family is a generation older than mine and the story is far larger. Twelve kids, six with schizophrenia. Two parents, both with problems. Kolker makes this a human story and a medical story. A remarkable introduction to the lived experience of having and treating psychotic disorders. Oh, and Dr. Robert Freedman hired me to Colorado. He is the scholar and gentleman the book portrays.
