Novels About The Nutty, Masterpieces of the Mentally Impaired

Nathan
The list author says: "A list of short stories, novellas, and novels that varies in point of view, scope, and perspective, however, subject the reader to a societal flaw; the way we as Americans, humans, deal with individuals diagnosed with mental disorder and disease."
Forget You Must Remember
Forget You Must Remember
"Too emotional to not put away, this novel needed to find a home. That home is for everyone who is connected to someone with mental illness, or is a veteran of our Armed Forces. As much as one tries, you'll tire remembering, always in the head."

"Classic novel told from the perspective of the "deaf and dumb" indian. Though the film was way off from Ken Kesey's novel, its impact bowled over audiences, whether they were readers or movie-goers. Classic fight-the-system cinema where a hero sacrifices his greatest gift."

"Frederick Exley is the master of painting an image with various dimensions. Metaphorically, he describes the flat-footed sprinter, the silent hero, and obsessive man wanting to live vicariously through anyone except themselves."
Disturbing the Peace
Disturbing the Peace
"Downward spiral in the hey day of up swings, Richard Yates leaves no stone unturned or polite dinner conversation uninterrupted. Brash, arrogant, yet vulnerable and sensitive; Yates holds nothing back. To read him is to feel what it is to be sick."
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
"Follow an investigation through the eyes of an autistic boy. Though unlike the other texts in this list, it is spellbinding to read something with such accuracy on its topics. A good book makes you feel as if you're there. A great book makes you ponder its possibilities."
An Unquiet Mind: A Memoir of Moods and Madness
An Unquiet Mind: A Memoir of Moods and Madness
"Master storyteller, though never needing to wind a tale, Kay Redfield Jamison speaks from the heart, guiding all who read through the ails and ills of mental illness. A must read for the non-fiction."
Electroboy: A Memoir of Mania
Electroboy: A Memoir of Mania
"The author's memoir. In short, been there and done that. Scheduled tomorrow if there are doubts."
