  • Overview

    An award-winning memoir that goes far beyond its riveting medical mystery, Brain on Fire is the powerful account of one woman's struggle to recapture her identity. When twenty-four-year-old Susannah Cahalan woke up alone in a hospital room, strapped to her bed and unable to move or speak, she had no memory of how she'd gotten there. Only days earlier, she had been leading an exciting life at the beginning of her promising career at a major New York newspaper. Now she was labeled violent, psychotic, a flight risk. What happened?

    Susannah's memoir tells the astonishing true story of her descent into madness, her family's inspiring faith in her, and the lifesaving diagnosis of an exceedingly rare disease which led to her complete recovery.
