    This is a really interesting read. Mark is the oldest child of Vonnegut’s, so he remembers back to before Vonnegut got famous and was still poor and raising like twelve kids. In his twenties, Mark become schizophrenic- he struggles for a long time in this crazy medical system. He gets better, and then ends up BECOMING A DOCTOR. Can you imagine how hard that would be? This is very well written, and has interesting insight into fame, mental illness and the medical establishment.
