9 Highland Road
Sane Living for the Mentally Ill

Written by New York Times columnist and national correspondent, Michael Winerip.

This perfectly observed and passionately imagined book takes us inside of the supervised group homes that, in an age of shrinking state budgets and psychotropic drugs, have emerged as the backbone of America's mental health system.

"As in the works of Robert Coles or James Agee, the devastating evidence...comes from Winerip's total immersion in his subject....He brings a dramatist's or novelist's acute sensibilities to the page." --- Boston Globe
