The Key to Genius Manic-Depression and the Creative Life by D. Jablow Hershman and Julian Lieb Buffalo: Prometheus Books, 1988, 220 pp., $19.95

Review by:
Thomas C. Caramagno, Ph.D.

This is a timely book about a very old question: how are madness and creative genius connected? We assume there is a special “art” to thinking and feeling and that the narrative act called consciousness can be shaped, authorized, by the secret writer inside us, regardless of its neurological origins. But what is the nature of this art, what does this narrative mean, and who is the writer? Hard questions in these post-Lacanian times.
