2 Electroboy: A Memoir of Mania Behrman, Andy
New York, New York, U.S.A. Random House Inc 2002 0375503587 / 9780375503580 Stated 1st Edition/2nd Printing Hard Copy Very Good+ Very Good 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall Inscribed By Author
Random House, New York, 2002. Inscribed by author on title page, as follows: "Dana, Enjoy! Best, Andy Behr". Stated 1st edition/2nd printing. Book is in Very Good+ condition: front board doesn't lie quite flat. Dust jacket is in Very Good condition: laminated top layer is beginning to peel at edges; creasing along edges. From the dust jacket: "'Electroboy' is an emotionally frenzied memoir that reveals with kaleidoscopic intensity the terrifying world of manic depression. For years Andy Behrman hid his raging mania behind a larger-than-life personality. He sought a high wherever he could find one and changed jobs the way some people change outfits: filmmaker, PR agent, art dealer, stripper - whatever made him feel like a cartoon character, invincible and bright. Misdiagnosed by psychiatrists and psychoteherapists for years, his condition exacted a terrible . . . [toll]: out-of-control euphoric highs and tornadolike rages of depression that put his life in jeopardy.Ignoring his crescendoing illness, Behrman struggled to keep up appearances, clinging to the golden-boy image he had cultivated in his youth. But when he turned to art forgery, he found himself the subject of a scandal lapped up by the New York media, then incarcerated, then under house arrest. And for the first time the golden boy didn't have a ready escape hatch from his unraveling life. Ingesting handfuls of antidepressants and tranquilizers and feeling his mind lose traction, he opted for the last resort: electroshock therapy. At once hilarious and harrowing, Electroboy paints a mesmerizing portrait of a man held hostage by his insatiable desire to consume. Along the way, it shows us the New York that never sleeps: a world of strip clubs, after-hours dives, and twenty-four-hour coffee shops, whose cheap seductions offer comfort to the city's lonely souls. This unforgettable memoir is a unique contribution to the literature of mental illness and introduces a writer whose energy may well keep you up all night."
