Shelter in Place by Alexander Maksik

In his new novel, Maksik captures the slipperiness of bipolar disorder and the discomforting contradiction of our current cultural climate. Shelter in Place shifts through time, moving back and forth in the Pacific Northwest, beginning in the early 90s when Joe March graduates from college, falls madly in love, and sees his mother go to prison for murder, and then forward through the years as he lives with the aftermath of that one summer as well as his own mental illness—or as he describes it, the bird, the tar, and the ecstasy.  —Melinda
