New memoir worth reading (1 Viewer)

It's called "Nervous System: or Losing My Mind in Literature".

The author, Jan Lars Jensen, details his descent into psychosis after the completion and acceptance of his first novel... "Shiva 3000".

A very interesting (and importantly: not overly bloated) piece of work.

I would also like to recommend anything and everything by Canadian author, Timothy Findley. Especially "Headhunter", which is sort of a retelling of Conrad's "Heart of Darkness" and Not Wanted On The Voyage" ... Findley's own take on Noah and the flood.

It is a good read. Always fascinating the connection between insanity and creativity.
