ELECTROBOY A MEMOIR OF MANIA PDF

For years Andy Behrman hid his raging mania behind a larger-than-life personality. He sought a high wherever he could find one and changed jobs the way some people change outfits: filmmaker, PR agent, art dealer, stripper-whatever made him feel like a cartoon character, invincible and bright. Misdiagnosed by psychiatrists and psychotherapists for years, his condition exacted a terrible price: out-of-control euphoric highs and tornadolike rages of depression that put his life in jeopardy. Ignoring his crescendoing illness, Behrman struggled to keep up appearances, clinging to the golden-boy image he had cultivated in his youth.

For years Andy Behrman hid his raging mania behind a larger-than-life personality. He sought a high wherever he could find one and changed jobs the way some people change outfits: filmmaker, PR agent, art dealer, stripper-whatever made him feel like a cartoon character, invincible and bright. Misdiagnosed by psychiatrists and psychotherapists for years, his condition exacted a terrible price: out-of-control euphoric highs and tornadolike rages of depression that put his life in jeopardy.

Ignoring his crescendoing illness, Behrman struggled to keep up appearances, clinging to the golden-boy image he had cultivated in his youth.

But when he turned to art forgery, he found himself the subject of a scandal lapped up by the New York media, then incarcerated, then under house arrest. Ingesting handfuls of antidepressants and tranquilizers and feeling his mind lose traction, he opted for the last resort: electroshock therapy.

At once hilarious and harrowing, Electroboy paints a mesmerizing portrait of a man held hostage by his in-satiable desire to consume. This unforgettable memoir is a unique contribution to the literature of mental illness and introduces a writer whose energy may well keep you up all night. From the Hardcover edition. Electroboy is easily one of the best, and absolutely one of my favorites.

Movie coming soon! Shocking, yet thought provoking, I appreciated his vivid accounts and in-your-face recollections.

Electroboy A Memoir Of Mania

To be completely honest, I think my longtime partner may have tendency toward some kind of mania, or bipolar, or something, and I happened to find this book when he was in sort of a tough place. It did not do that at all. Electroboy is not a book about diagnosing and dealing with the reality of manic-depressive disorder. Andy Behrman comes across as a spoiled rich kid from the get. He has a crazy amount of sex and does an astounding amount of drugs. His morality is dubious and extremely fluid. He hurts all the people around him, with varying degrees of intent and satisfaction.
