Globe Reading Group: This weeks discussion will be focused on Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness, by Susannah Cahalan. An award-winning memoir and instant “New York Times” bestseller that goes far beyond its riveting medical mystery, “Brain on Fire” is the powerful account of one woman s struggle to recapture her identity. When twenty-four-year-old Susannah Cahalan woke up alone in a hospital room, strapped to her bed and unable to move or speak, she had no memory of how she d gotten there. Days earlier, she had been on the threshold of a new, adult life: at the beginning of her first serious relationship and a promising career at a major New York newspaper. Now she was labeled violent, psychotic, a flight risk. What happened? In a swift and breathtaking narrative, Susannah tells the astonishing true story of her descent into madness, her family s inspiring faith in her, and the lifesaving diagnosis that nearly didn’t happen. A fascinating look at the disease that . . . could have cost this vibrant, vital young woman her life (“People”), “Brain on Fire” is an unforgettable exploration of memory and identity, faith and love, and a profoundly compelling tale of survival and perseverance that is destined to become a classic.”
