Summary
"Sandra Allen did not know her uncle Bob very well. As a child, she had been told he was 'crazy,' that he had spent time in mental hospitals while growing up in Berkeley in the '60s and '70s ...

Typewritten in all caps, a stream of error-riddled sentences over sixty, single-spaced pages, the often incomprehensible manuscript proclaimed to be a 'true story' about being 'labeled a psychotic paranoid schizophrenic,' and arrived with a plea to help him get his story out to the world. In [this book], Allen translates her uncle's autobiography, ... creating a ... coming-of-age story while sticking ... to the facts as he shared them"--
