Mark Vonnegut set out in search of Eden with his VW bug, his girlfriend, his dog, and his ideals. But genetic predisposition and “a whole lot of **** going down” made Mark Vonnegut crazy in a culture that told him “mental illness is a myth” and “schizophrenia is a sane response to an insane society.” Here he tells his story with the eyes that see from the inside out: a moving remembrance of an era and a revealing look at mental illness . . . and getting well again.

This book is fantastic! It's funny and alarming, authentic and unbelievable, full of foul language and impressive literary feats. Fans of Mark's literary genius of a father, Kurt Vonnegut, will certainly dig this book, and comparisons to the elder Vonnegut's writing style certainly abound. But the younger Vonnegut's work stands on its own. Hand this memoir to anyone interested in mental health, hippies, living-off-the-grid, philosophy, religion, do-gooders, drugs--either psychedelic or psychotropic--or anyone who simply appreciates a powerful personal story of struggle, with a hopeful ending.
