Reviewed by Linda:
In this moving, beautifully written memoir, the author relates how his loving family’s close ties were tested when his younger brother became ill with schizophrenia and, while untreated and in a psychotic episode, murdered their mother. Granata tells of the long journey they took to understand how this tragedy could have occurred, and whether and how to reconnect with his brother. A very informative look at a severe mental illness and hope for healing after the unthinkable happens.
