Everyday Madness

Author(s): Lisa Appignanesi

Biography

A short, potent examination of the ways in which our sanity can become, suddenly, elusive, Everyday Madness is a deeply personal and brave account of subjects that resonate powerfully for so many of us.Unfolding in three sections, Everyday Madness delves into the aftermath of Lisa Appignanesi's partner's death, the story of her father (a post-war Polish immigrant to Canada) and finally the perspective of Lisa's two-year-old grandson, whose younger brother arrives and upends his world.Asking how we might cope with, or even heal, the forms of everyday madness that we are all faced with in our lives, Lisa Appignanesi's memoir is a poignant, heartfelt reflection on love and loss.
