About this title


Hope and love are the prescriptions that social worker Faye Kufahl has written in her compelling, new memoir "Nutterville...and Other True Stories of Coping with Mental Illness." Part I, "Nutterville," is a tender and compassionate recounting of the personality-forming events and family dynamics the author experienced while growing up in 1950s, small-town Wisconsin. This childhood became the foundation and inspiration for Ms Kufahl's earnest efforts to open a sincere discussion and ongoing dialogue both with and about those who struggle with mental illness. The book is not only an endearing yet heartbreaking story of sisterly love, it is also an outreach to anyone who has ever felt isolated, like a "misfit" or somehow "different"---or to anyone who knows someone that feels this way. Each story in the book has the potential to impart new insights on the frailties of human nature and the real-life impact our social, cultural and spiritual institutions have on the daily lives of those affected. Even as tragedy stalks the haunted, homeless denizens of mean streets, Faye Kufahl's empathy and warm-hearted humor convey the to a deeper understanding of their plight: The near-folly in her sister Gail's solemn belief that apple seeds will save her life---or the sublime question of whether or not one should be allowed to dance with ghosts. Aside from being spellbinding storytelling, "Nutterville...and Other True Stories of Coping with Mental Illness" is a powerful example of a life spent in service to others. While the experience has been sobering and humbling, Kufahl's deep caring, fierce intellect and warm sense of humor have helped guide her to the conclusions stated at the end of the book, that is: Our common humanity links us through love and diversity---we are all one. "Nutterville..." is an essential read for people from all walks of life.
