Brain on Fire

'My first serious blackout marked the line between sanity and insanity………' It started with a headache. Then within  days twenty-four-year-old New Yorker Susannah Cahalan was having violent fits, hallucinating, blacking out and attacking those around her. This is the story of one woman's descent into insanity. In Brain on Fire she pieces together the terrifying lost month of her life, asking what happens when your identity is suddenly destroyed - and how you get it back.
