View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Left of the Dial is an uplifting and inspiring account of recovery from schizophrenia. Christina Bruni was a disc jockey at WSIA, 88.9 FM, a radio station that broadcast left of the commercial end of the FM dial, when she was diagnosed with schizophrenia in 1987. At twenty-two years old, she dared to dream of having a life worth living, not the life expected for someone found in this unfamiliar, unthinkable situation. The memoir chronicles her early career in the gray flannel insurance field, a short yet dramatic relapse, and her ultimate triumph as a mental health activist, freelance writer and public service librarian. Left of the Dial shows that real recovery is possible and not just for a select few. Christina Bruni was an ordinary person determined to succeed and her story will give readers the hope that they can have a good life too.
