In this colorful memoir, Danny Roberts takes readers on a hilarious, thought-provoking, and occasionally tragic journey through his life.
From stories of his disruptiveness as a youth to his entrance into the Salt Lake City punk scene in his teens to learning how to manage his schizophrenia, Roberts writes with an openness and honesty that is much more than the facts of his life — it’s an emotional odyssey. Roberts does not shy away from writing about any aspect of his life, including his brief time in jail.
Split Mind: My Life with Schizophrenia also provides a look at the mental health system in the United States through one man’s experiences.
