OC87RecoveryDiaries Review of Manic Kingdom

On the Back of the Book:

“Could that disheveled young woman— rooting around in the trash for potatoes and clothes— possibly be a med student? The unthinkable becomes reality when you are seduced by the Manic Kingdom. It can upend your seemingly pitch-perfect existence, thrusting you into a world where your inhibitions, intellect, and instincts are powerless to save you. Join Dr. Erin Stair on the journey of a lifetime.

Based on a true story, Becka is on the verge of becoming a doctor, immersed in the world of physical and mental illness, while her own mental health was crumbling. Travel with her 3,000 miles away to California, where she fled from her school, her roommate and her life, finding romance and companionship with a mysterious man known only to her as “King.” King was helpful to her in many ways, but was she ignoring warning signs that disaster was right around the corner?

Manic Kingdom is a frightening, sometimes humorous, essential reminder of how we can lose ourselves, how dangerous we can be to ourselves, and how fragile stability can be.”

Reviews from Amazon :

“This is a well-written and fascinating page-turner, an easy read with a lot of great insights and a well-fashioned line between determining whether the experience described is the writer’s individual reality on the one hand, or the alternative: an episode of pathological insightlessness about the remarkable situation in which she finds herself. The reader becomes excited by how she handles what might be a madman but might also merely be a handsome and appealing eccentric who has embraced an unusual life and is happy to have found a soulmate for it. I recommend it to anyone interested in the line between pathology and eccentricity. One learns a lot about where mania and clinical misperception start and where love and passion intrude. And, at the end, we get a sense of relief that our enthusiastic guide through this adventure finds her way back to reality.”-  Psychiatrist Dr. Henry Jarecki

    What a spectacular way to spend a day or two. This book is an incredibly fast and intriguing read, with a suspiciously speculative, yet surprisingly shocking end. Stair’s use of language conjures instant and vivid pictures of the story she tells in the mind’s eye. The story is one that borders on unbelievable, were it not for the vulnerable fragility of the human psyche. The fact that this is based on a true story, is an inspirational nod to unroofing the lid off the stigma of mental health, especially in relation to health care professionals. Stair’s writing is truly brilliant. Worth the investment and the time.
