"In the space of five years, I went from graduating at Harvard to becoming a psychiatric patient. I overcame the stranglehold of depression and chose not to die. Instead, I embraced life only to discover I am a good Greek girl at heart, albeit an unconventional one."This is the powerful and moving true-life story of a high-flying Harvard graduate who fought a terrifying battle against depression and psychosis. The Mind Thief will make you laugh, cry, gasp and smile. Written with elegance and honesty, it is a harrowing account of a complete mental breakdown, but is ultimately uplifting.
