Description

The anguished, volatile intensity we associate with the artistic temperament, often described as “a fine madness,” has been thought of as a defining aspect of much artistic genius. Now, Kay Jamison’s brilliant work, based on years of studies as a clinical psychologist and prominent researcher in mood disorders, reveals that many artists who were subject to alternatingly exultant and then melancholic moods were, in fact, engaged in a lifelong struggle with manic-depressive illness.
