After waking up strapped to a hospital bed, New York Post reporter Susannah Cahalan learned she had been violent and catatonic, exhibiting a gamut of strange, inexplicable behavior. Her memoir chronicles her journey from suffering from a mysterious illness to the chance act that led to her diagnosis. Hers is a story of autoimmune disease, the vagaries of the brain, and diagnosing the undiagnosable.
