Memoir

Because I Come From A Crazy Family The Making Of A Psychiatrist

Because I Come from a Crazy Family, tells the often strange story of a childhood marked by what Dr. Hallowell calls the “WASP triad” of alcoholism, mental illness, and politeness, and explores the wild wish, surging beneath his incredible ambition, that he could have saved his own family of drunk, crazy, and well-intentioned eccentrics, and himself.

Dr. Hallowell "Unlike any book I've written before, this one only tells stories, true stories from my childhood and my early training in psychiatry. I introduce you to the great array of eccentric, wonderful, colorful and yes, sometimes crazy people who populated my life. It gives me enormous pleasure to share with you all the gifts they gave to me through this memoir."
