Books Info:

Hurry Down Sunshine free pdf "HURRY DOWN SUNSHINE "TELLS THE STORY OF THE extraordinary summer when, at the age of fifteen, Michael Greenberg's daughter was struck mad. It begins with Sally's visionary crack-up on the streets of Greenwich Village, and continues, among other places, in the out-of-time world of a Manhattan psychiatric ward during the city's most sweltering months. "I feel like I'm traveling and traveling with nowhere to go back to," Sally says in a burst of lucidity while hurtling away toward some place her father could not dream of or imagine. "Hurry Down Sunshine "is the chronicle of that journey, and its effect on Sally and those closest to her-her brother and grandmother, her mother and stepmother, and, not least of all, the author himself. Among Greenberg's unforgettable gallery of characters are an unconventional psychiatrist, an Orthodox Jewish patient, a manic Classics professor, a movie producer, and a landlord with literary dreams. Unsentimental, nuanced, and deeply humane, "Hurry Down Sunshine "holds the reader in a mesmerizing state of suspension between the mundane and the transcendent. "The psychotic break of his fifteen-year-old daughter is the grit around which Michael Greenberg forms the pearl that is "Hurry Down Sunshine." It is a brilliant, taut, entirely original study of a suffering child and a family and marriage under siege. I know of no other book about madness whose claim to scientific knowledge is so modest and whose artistic achievement is so great." - Janet Malcolm, author of "The Silent Woman: Sylvia Plath
