Her visionary crack-up occurred on the streets of Greenwich Village and continued, among other places, in the lost-in-time world of a Manhattan psychiatric ward during New York City’ s most sweltering months. Hurry Down Sunshine is Greenberg’ s journey toward comprehending mental illness in his own family. With touching honesty and intimacy, he reveals the effect of Sally’ s mania on those closest to her, including her easygoing brother, her stalwart grandmother, her new-age mother, her artistic, loving stepmother— and, finally, on himself. Unsentimental, nuanced and deeply humane, Hurry Down Sunshine is a transcendent memoir about mental illness and the restorative power of one father’ s love for his daughter.
