Barbara EhrenreichSo what do you do when you find yourself cast as ''Dad'' in what appears to be a parody of the stock suburban-dysfunction novel? Well, you could do some research and write a book about dealing with children's and teenagers' mental illness. This was the choice that led to Paul Raeburn's harrowing new book, Acquainted With the Night: A Parent's Quest to Understand Depression and Bipolar Disorder in His Children, and it was, no doubt, a healthy one. He got to distance himself, as only a writer can do, from the ugly drama at home, while at the same time producing a work that will surely be a help to thousands of similarly distraught parents.
