Sintesi dell'editore

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 shit going down made him crazy in a culture that told him mental illness is a myth and schizophrenia is a sane response to an insane society.

Describing his experiences during the late '60s and early '70s, Eden Express reveals how Mark went from being a recent college grad who was in love and living communally on a farm - with a famous, doting father, a cherished dog, and a prized jalopy - to having nervous breakdowns and then, eventually, emerging from them to write this book and to find the meaningful life that had - for a while - seemed out of reach.

But the real story here is that, throughout his harrowing experience, Mark's sense of humor let him see the humanity in what he was going through and that his gift for language let him describe it in such a way that others could begin to imagine its utter ordinariness as well as the madness that we all share.

Excellent work

A thorough and caring understanding of schizophrenia. Well written and deeply felt. The psychotic episodes are presented with a shocking amount of clarity and self awareness.

There is more to life than just the ego

A difficult story told in a very, most eloquent, way! In the end it all comes down to “who are we really”

very hopeful story about mental illness

very accessible and not depresssing.... sometimes funny, sometimes too raw for me, but worth the pain.
