I am so, so sad to be finishing this book tonight. Truly one of the best books I have ever read. So perfectly written, Carole Radziwill allows you to feel what it might be like to watch the ones you love the most leave this world. Heart wrenching and real...I will be reading this book again and again. I recommend it to anyone and everyone!
The Lives They Left Behind: Suitcases from a State Hospital Attic by Darby Penney, Peter Statsny, and photos by Lisa Rinzler. It was a book that took 10yrs to come together and contains the photos & stories of nearly 400 suitcases...and their owners. "...deeply moving testament to the human side of mental illness, and the narrow margin between the sane and the insane." -Oliver Sacks, MD
