The Booksmith says…

Ellen Forney has drawn ever since she can remember and has always been a storyteller. So, when, shortly before turning thirty, Forney was diagnosed withbipolar disorder, she knew someday she would tell her story in comic form. In this dazzling graphic memoir, she takes readers through the electric highs and dark lows of her journey and asks a powerful, provocative question: for artists, are mental disorders a gift or a curse?
