CRAZY A Father's Search Through America's Mental Health Madness

by | Read by Michael Prichard

Biography & Memoir • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

A journalist with a seriously mental ill son tells the chilling story of how difficult it was to find people and institutions that could help them. The larger story, told with equal grace and thoroughness, is that U.S. prisons and jails are increasingly warehousing people not reached by the mental health system. Michael Prichard's narration is classy and restrained. Letting the story itself remain prominent, he sounds concerned but never strays into melodrama. The struggles with the son's bipolar illness are heart-wrenching; the boy is always of the verge of spinning out of control. Yet the intensity of the author's personal story didn't prevent him from writing a balanced investigation on the broader issues. T.W. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 06/ JAN 07]
