Sharp - A Memoir


 

David Fitzpatricks Sharp is an extraordinary memoira fascinating, disturbing look into the mind of a man who, in his early 20s, began cutting himself due to a severe mental illness. A beautifully written treatment of a powerful subject, Fitzpatrickwhose symptoms included extreme depression and self-mutilationwrites movingly and honestly about his affliction and inspires readers with his courage, joining the literary ranks of Terri Cheney (Manic), Augusten Burroughs (Running with Scissors), Marya Hornbacher (Wasted), and Susanna Kaysen (Girl, Interrupted).A harrowing journey from self-destructive psychosis to a cautious re-emergence into the flickering sunshine of the sane world.Fitzpatrick writes about mental illness with the unsparing intensity of Sylvia Plath and Anne Sexton but also with the hard-won self-knowledge of William Styron, Kay Jamison, and other chroniclers of disease, recovery, and management. A must read, remarkably told.Wally Lamb, author of I Know This Much is True
