Left Bank Books welcomes animal rights activist and author Dan Mathews, who will discuss his new memoir, “Like Crazy: Life with My Mother and Her Invisible Friends,” on Facebook Live at 7pm CDT on August 11. Join us on our Facebook Page and order a copy of “Like Crazy” from Left Bank Books. “Like Crazy” is a hilarious and heartbreaking memoir about an outlandish mother and son on an odyssey of self-discovery, and the rag-tag community that rallied to help them as the mother entered the final phase of her life. Irreverent and emotionally powerful, “Like Crazy” is a darkly comic tale about the perils and rewards of taking in a fragile parent without derailing your life in the process. A rare story about mental illness with an uplifting conclusion, it shows the remarkable growth that takes place when a wild child settles down to care for the wild woman who raised him. “Exquisite. Full of wry humor, tenderness, and compassion.” —Jeannette Walls, New York Times bestselling author
