Reviews

"This utterly gripping, sharply written memoir pulls no punches. With cauterizing honesty and a blessed sense of perspective, Annita Perez Sawyer takes you into and through her dark experience to the shores of wisdom." Philip Lopate, author, Being With Children "How to mend a psyche shattered by personal trauma? Annita Sawyer seeks answers to that question, first for her patients and then for herself. In prose without a hint of self-pity, yet rich in sensory details and professional insight, she draws a dark history into the light." Scott Russell Sanders, author, Divine Animal: A Novel "Annita Sawyer writes candidly and gracefully of her vulnerabilities and her persistence as she details her harrowing experience with a misdiagnosis, the hard-won life she forges in its wake, and her ultimate reconciliation with her buried past. Smoking Cigarettes, Eating Glass is a brave, compassionate, memorable book." Jane Brox, author, Five Thousand Days Like This One: The Evolution of Artifical Light "This account of psychiatric misdiagnosis and mistreatment is remarkable for its narrative force, its palpable (and entirely justified) rage, and its fierce honesty." Anne Fadiman, author, At Large and At Small and The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down "Annita Sawyer' Smoking Cigarettes, Eating Glass is an extraordinary achievement, a memoir of a Yale-trained psychologist' harrowing struggle with serious mental illness and recovery. Beautifully written and full of heartbreak, hope and wisdom, for anyone with a personal or family history of mental illness, this is a must read." Thomas H. Styron, Associate Professor of Psychiatry, Yale School of Medicine "A fiercely honest and beautifully written book." Paul Austin, author, B eautiful Eyes and Something for the Pain "The author's look back on her youth is especially absorbing from her perspective as a practicing psychologist who has treated people with mental illnesses similar to those she experienced." Library Journal
