From the Author
Hmmmm. I came to this book after reading an article in the New York Times Magazine on the mental condition latah, a culture-specific syndrome of Southeast Asia. I was also struck by the growing number of people close to me, people with seemingly good lives, who were having problems and taking prescribed drugs.
Youre a professor and a professional writer and journalist. Do you find these careers to be compatible, even complementary, or is it actually hard to do both at the same time?
I find them very compatible. When I teach I often talk in depth about the research of other people I have written about, and I think I know their work better because I had to know everything about it to do a journalism piece. I think journalism keeps me up to date on all science issues.
Whats your favorite season? Why?
Fall Because the leaves turns, and people light fires and you can smell the smoke, and I knit so thats a great time for making sweaters, and its be best season for long walks .
