"Hurry Down Sunshine" by Michael Greenberg

Summary: A father's memoir of his 15-year-old daughter's sudden psychosis.

Musings: Interesting discussion of what psychosis is. I liked his use of literary allusions (particularly to other famous/genius/crazy writers) as a way to understand his daughter. He contemplates: if we diagnose mental illness as varying from "average," how do we distinguish between sickness and genius? Short and little action, but interesting.
