Basket Case: Stories of an Illness
by Christopher G. Bremicker
Get off you dead ass, the author advises victims of schizophrenia. Seeing your doctor, taking your pills, and staring out the window are not enough. Do something. He skis, hunts, and fishes to get well. Forty years ago he was in a straight jacket. Today he plays in a handball league and attends theater. Work is his salvation. Life is good. Action cured him more than words.
