Staff Reviews

Cahalan was a promising young reporter when she woke up one morning and began going insane. She and her family believed there was an underlying medical issue, but doctors weren’t convinced. Both a terrifying medical mystery and a moving portrait of one family’s dedication, this is a powerful, completely engrossing memoir. Not for hypochondriacs!

— Flannery

November 2012 Indie Next List

“A young reporter's near-death experience started with what seemed to be a bedbug bite, followed by an out-of-character migraine. Cahalan forgot a pitch meeting. She snooped on her boyfriend's email. Beloved newspaper clippings were tossed. Garbage piled up in her apartment. And then the seizures began. This compelling story of one woman's descent into madness and the equally horrifying journey of her family to find suitable help works both as a great literary memoir as well as a well-reported medical mystery. You might say the result is Girl, Interrupted with a dash of The Hot Zone and a sprinkling of The Exorcist!”
