Angelhead: My Brother's Decent Into Madness - Greg Bottoms

Headline, 2001, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.
Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Leans slightly.

From the cover: “Set in Tidewater, Virginia, in the 1980s and early 1990s, this book documents the violent, drug-addled descent of the author’s brother, Michael, into paranoid schizophrenia. From Michael’s first psychotic break aged 14 — out of his mind on acid, seeing God in his suburban bedroom window — through a series of petty crimes, bizarre disappearances, and suicide attempts to the shocking crime that landed him in the psychiatric wing of a maximum-security prison. This book enables the reader to witness first-hand the fragmenting of a mind and a family. The author’s prose offers no consolation or easy answers — simply emotional precision and hard truth.”
