Abstract:

In A Mind Apart, Susanne Antonetta draws on her personal experience with manic depression, as well as interviews with people with multiple personality disorder, autism, schizophrenia, and other "neuroatypical" conditions, to construct a fascinating portrait of how the world shapes itself in minds that are profoundly different from the norm. As with her previous book, which Michael Pollan praised in the New York Times Book Review as "a challenge to our prevailing notions of science and journalism and even literary narrative," A Mind Apart employs a unique fusion of literary genres to draw readers into the experience of people with neurological conditions and to consider what their alternate ways of perceiving may, in fact, have to teach us. --Publisher.
