Write The First Customer Review

In this insightful and caring look at mental illness and the contemporary values surrounding it, Karp, working from 60 extensive interviews, chronicles the experiences of the family members of the mentally ill, and how they draw "boundaries of sympathy" to avoid being engulfed by the day-to-day suffering of a loved one.
