Marya Hornbacher -- Radical and Deeply Personal Writing About Mental Illness, Addiction and Eating Disorders

Marya Hornbacher is an award-winning journalist and the New York Times bestselling author of five books. Her book “Madness” is “an intense, beautifully written” book about the difficulties, and promise, of living with mental illness. It has been called "the most visceral, important book on mental illness to be published in years." Her book “Sane: Mental Illness, Addiction, and the Twelve Steps” is a practical, funny, user-friendly guide to working the Twelve Steps for people who deal with a dual diagnosis of mental illness and addiction. And “Waiting: A Nonbeliever’s Higher Power” is a powerful, almost radical exploration of what spirituality can mean to the recovering person who does not believe in God. Find out more at
