Hidden Valley Road
Hidden Valley Road Inside the Mind of An American Family By Kolker, Robert eBook - 2020

Another of the NY Times 10 best of 2020. It tells the story of a family in Colorado who had 12 children, ten boys and two girls. Six of the boys develop schizophrenia. Amazingly heartbreaking story, and there are many connections with my own life. My brother also developed schizophrenia during the same time period (late 1960s), and this had a profound effect on my family. We were in New Mexico, so also in the Southwest. Truly an amazing story, and I can't say enough about the kindness of this family for opening up and telling their story in the hopes of helping others deal with this disease.
