Imagining Robert: My Brother, Madness, and Survival, A Memoir - Taschenbuch

2000, ISBN: 0813532965

[SR: 1040506], Paperback, [EAN: 9780813532967], Rutgers University Press, Rutgers University Press, Book, [PU: Rutgers University Press], Rutgers University Press, "[Neugeboren] is the first writer to capture what it's like for the millions of families who must cope with a problem for which, most of the time, there is no solution. It's that portrait of a loving relationship that gives Imagining Robert its great power."--Book of the Month Club News "Novelist Neugeboren has written a detailed, exquisitely painful, and always thoughtful account of his younger brother's long struggle with mental illness. [It] may bring understanding to those who can barely imagine such horrors and comfort to those who have and felt it alone."--Publishers Weekly "An uncommon tale of brotherly love, and a passionate defense of the notion that dignity belongs as much to the mad as the rest of us."--Kirkus Reviews Jay Neugeboren and his brother, Robert, grew up in Brooklyn in the years following World War II. Both brothers--smart, talented, and popular--seemed well on the way to successful lives when, for reasons that remain ultimately mysterious, Robert had a mental breakdown at age nineteen. For the past forty years Jay has been not only his brother's friend and confidant, but his advocate, as Robert continues to suffer from the ravages of the illness that has kept him institutionalized for most of his adult life. Imagining Robert tells the story of these two brothers and how their love for one another has enabled both to survive and to thrive in miraculous, surprising ways. It reveals how even the grimmest of lives can be sustained by the power of love. Jay Neugeboren is the author of thirteen books, including two collections of award-winning stories, two prize-winning novels, and two nonfiction titles. His most recent book is Transforming Madness: New Lives for People Living with Mental Illness, winner of a "Ken" 2000 Book Award from the New York City/Metro Chapter of the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill., Imagining Robert is an account of Robert Neugeboren's 30-year history of mental illness. In this moving memoir, his brother Jay describes the tragedy of psychosis and illustrates the redemptive power of writing. The author imagines his brother as two people--one hospitalized, the other communicative and lucid--and crafts a story of his brother's thoughts by weaving together Robert's exquisitely written letters about this unfolding family tragedy. The instability of the author's own children and his manipulative mother's affliction with Alzheimer's disease multiply the pressure he feels, threatening his own mental health. His careful words seem an attempt to organize the confusion around him. The imagined friendship with the brother he lovingly cares for serves as an important source of self-examination. Neugeboren's prose restores his brother's dignity by refusing to let the details of how Robert has suffered in psychiatric institutions go unrecorded., 3048891, Memoirs, 2, Biographies & Memoirs, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 4682, Mental Health, 11128, Anxiety Disorders, 598622, Attention Deficit & Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders, 4693, Bipolar, 282909, Codependency, 11146, Compulsive Behavior, 16311461, Dementia, 4689, Depression, 15992951, Dissociative Disorders, 282910, Dreams, 282911, Eating Disorders, 11170, Emotions, 4739, Happiness, 4694, Mood Disorders, 600620, Personality Disorders, 16311441, Post-traumatic Stress Disorder, 282839, Postpartum Depression, 4695, Schizophrenia, 10, Health, Fitness & Dieting, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 11119, Psychology & Counseling, 11121, Adolescent Psychology, 11130, Applied Psychology, 11132, Child Psychology, 11149, Counseling, 11160, Creativity & Genius, 11162, Developmental Psychology, 11172, Experimental Psychology, 11173, Forensic Psychology, 11177, History, 16311181, Medicine & Psychology, 11186, Mental Illness, 11164, Neuropsychology, 11189, Occupational & Organizational, 11192, Pathologies, 11194, Personality, 11196, Physiological Aspects, 227701, Psychiatry, 11199, Psychoanalysis, 11201, Psychopharmacology, 11203, Psychotherapy, TA & NLP, 11205, Reference, 11207, Research, 11209, Sexuality, 11223, Social Psychology & Interactions, 11229, Testing & Measurement, 10, Health, Fitness & Dieting, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 6511988011, General, 6511980011, Psychology, 173514, Medical Books, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 6511991011, Mental Illness, 6511980011, Psychology, 173514, Medical Books, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 6511994011, Pathologies, 6511980011, Psychology, 173514, Medical Books, 1000, Subjects, 283155, Books, 684298011, Psychopathology, 491490, Psychology, 468214, Social Sciences, 465600, New, Used & Rental Textbooks, 2349030011, Specialty Boutique, 283155, Books
