Having learned about this book from Dave Sedaris on his last tour through Tulsa (he promotes a book and a thing on every tour. This time it was Sheehan's book and Japan) last winter and I just finished it. It's tedious but I learned a lot from it. It's the story of one Sylvia Frumpkin, a patient/victim of the New York State mental health system. She goes to multiple private and public institutions, sees many doctors, throws many pies and bites many ears in her trials. It's sad, and funny if you can distance yourself from it (which those of us with experience in mental illness know you must do to survive), and you gain greater symphathy and insight into the world of schizophrenics. Sheehan is an incredible journalist, having chronicled minutely (hence the tedium) Sylvia's life, and I believe she actually spent a year or more sleeping beside her in the mental hospitals.
