From NPR:
“Just Like Someone Without Mental Illness, Only More So” — Mark Vonnegut's second memoir — is an honest, witty and vivid depiction of "normal" life in between interruptions of mental illness. It's about how much one can accomplish, while a history of insanity follows close behind. "Once you've been talked to by voices, it's not possible to go back to a world where talking voices is not possible," he writes.

Mark's bipolar illness gave him the desire to be useful, to make up for the time he spent feeling useless while hospitalized in his 20s. And useful he became — after 19 rejections, young Vonnegut earned admission to Harvard Medical School and pursued a long and dedicated Boston-based pediatrics career.”
