THE FIRST REAL NOVEL ABOUT SCHIZOPHRENIA It is 1967. Kevin has just graduated from high school in the university town of Laketon, New York. People dressed in red are after him and his truck starts laughing at him. Then the Satan bugs arrive. Even these events don't stop him from falling in love. Kevin's journey with schizophrenia takes him through some of America's most turbulent and exciting times, from anti-war rallies and communes to cross-country road trips and Woodstock. In state hospitals and homeless in New York City, Kevin has the experiences that define a generation of the mentally ill. Kevin is a hero, fighting demons that inhabit his world-a world that is unknown to the rest of us. His family joins him, overwhelmed and misunderstood by the professionals that are supposed to help them. Have you ever seen a mentally ill man on the street talking to himself and wondered what he is thinking, what he is like, what is his story? You will know after reading this book. PRAISE FOR WHEN TRUTH LIES "[Garahan] writes clearly and well, and the subject is certainly appealing." - Dr. E. Fuller Torrey, author of Surviving Schizophrenia and The Insanity Offense "An evocative story, strongly written, and the reader can relate to Kevin - no small task." - Cara Hoffman, author of So Much Pretty
