BOOK REVIEW: Scattershot: My Bipolar Family: A Memoir

scattershot lovelace david

But great if it works for the Lovelace family. Scattershot is David Lovelace's poignant, humorous, and vivid account of bipolar disorder's effects on his family, and his gripping exploits as he spent his life running from—and finally learning to embrace—the madness imprinted on his genes.

She was lying on the floor in her nightgown. David writes about his family and their highs and lows very poignantly. I knew what he was attempting because I've done it at times, passed myself off as sane by sheer force of will. You know that settles her nerves. Their phone was disconnected and I got up to go. She wore one of those unfortunate business suits and her nails had been done up with tiny stars.

Twenty years ago doctors had given me the granddaddy of them all, Thorazine, and it hammered me. He began taking lithium, got into therapy, and started building a life.
