New Foreword by Kurt Vonnegut Winner of the American Library Association Notable Book Award, in this extraordinary memoir the gifted son of one of the literary grandmasters of the 20th century tells of his nervous breakdown in all its slow-motion intimacy, the taste of mortality and opportunity for humour it provided, and the grim despair it afforded as well. """"One of the best books about going crazy... Required reading"""" - New York Times """"Not only a memoir about his loss of...innocence, but a surprisingly good-natured trip"""" - LA Times

Synopsis:

Mark Vonnegut was a recent college graduate, self-avowed hippie, and son of a counterculture hero - until the nervous breakdowns hit in all their slow-motion intimacy...Described with a taste of mortality, grim despair and a relentless sense of humour, the illness that plagued Vonnegut is here transformed into an experience of growth and change. Simultaneously ironic and sincere in its humanism, the real story here is not only that Vonnegut managed to find the sanity that once seemed beyond reach, but that his gift of language helped him to share with us all both the utter ordinariness of illness and the madness we all share.

About the Author:

After writing The Eden Express, MARK VONNEGUT went to medical school. He lives with his wife and two children in Milton, Mass., where he is a full-time practicing pediatrician.

The Book Depository
(London, United Kingdom)

Book Description Seven Stories Press,U.S., United States, 2002. Paperback. Condition: New. Revised ed. Language: English. Brand new Book. The Eden Express describes from the inside Mark Vonnegut's experience in the late '60s and early '70s--a recent college grad; in love; living communally on a farm, with a famous and doting father, cherished dog, and prized jalopy--and then the nervous breakdowns in all their slow-motion intimacy, the taste of mortality and opportunity for humor they provided, and the grim despair they afforded as well. That he emerged to write this funny and true book and then moved on to find the meaningful life that for a while had seemed beyond reach is what ultimately happens in The Eden Express. But the real story here is that throughout his harrowing experience his sense of humor let him see the humanity of what he was going through, and his gift of language let him describe it in such a moving way that others could begin to imagine both its utter ordinariness as well as the madness we all share.
