Description: For years Andy Behrman hid his raging mania under a larger-than-life personality. He sought a high wherever he could find one and changed jobs as some people change outfits -- filmmaker, art dealer, stripper: whatever made him feel like a cartoon character, invincible and bright. But when he turned to art forgery, he found himself the subject of a scandal lapped up by the New York media, then in jail, then under house arrest. And for once he didn't have a ready escape hatch from his unraveling life. Ingesting handfuls of antidepressants and tranquilizers, feeling his mind lose traction, he decided to opt for the last resort: electroconvulsive therapy. His writing attains heights of precision and force as he details the terror of these treatments, which merged finally into the grateful ecstasy of relief.

Electroboy matches the frank poignancy of memoirs like Girl, Interrupted and Drinking: A Love Story with the transgressive energy of The Basketball Diaries. You'll live Andy's extraordinary highs and feel the profundity of his lows. Never has the Technicolor world of mania been opened like this.
