Christoph Fischer has written another wonderful, heartfelt story. This time, he explores the effects of bipolar disorder through the eyes of a family. Charles and his illness is painful to read. You can just imagine how difficult his life is, but he somehow pushes forward through his mother's death and funeral.
Charles' brother Tony, however, chooses to think Charles is lazy because of the way their mother treated the both of them growing up. Sadly, this comes to a head with his wife being obsessed with finances.
Charles' group of friends are very interesting, but out of them all, I really want to know what makes Simon tick.
I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in mental illness, wonderful stories, and a love for literature.
