This memoir by former New York Times restaurant critic Bryan Miller movingly recounts his struggles with bipolar disorder.

Despite the inherent glamour of dining in leading restaurants, befriending some of the greatest names in food and wine in the 1980s and '90s, and being on staff at the newspaper of record, Miller coped with, with widely varying degrees of success, mental illness that could arrive suddenly and crushingly.

His efforts to sustain relationships, perform professionally, and go about the business of everyday life were helped and hindered by factors ranging from prescription medication and electroshock therapy to motorcycling and Lyme disease. And a brain tumor.

Throughout the book it's clear that Miller's skills with the written word are still keen after a long career. He's an engaging raconteur with a gift for deft characterization, capable of vivid metaphors and insight in the same sentence, all put to good use in this account.
