The Eden Express

Mark Vonnegut

New York, NY Dell: Laurel, 1988. Paperback First Ed thus; First Printing indicated. First Ed thus; First Printing indicated. Very Good+ to Near Fine in Wraps: shows only the most minute indications of use: very light wear to the extremities; faintest hairline crease top to bottom near the front hinge and a couple of barely discernible hairline creases at the backstrip; the binding shows the slightest lean, while remaining perfectly secure; text clean. Pages tanned a bit, due to aging. No longer pristine, but remains a structurally sound, tightly bound copy showing minimial wear and possessing a clean text. NOT a Remainder. NOT a Book-Club Edition. NOT an Ex-Library copy. 16mo. 276pp. Mass Market Paperback. The Eden Express is fascinating and very delightful book, full of insight and well worth reading. Not many books tackle the admittedly difficult issue of describing insanity from the inside out (i.e., in the form of a first-person recollection), and this book is truly useful for those looking for such a work. It's hard to imagine anyone doing it better. I can see this as a practical "must read" for medical professionals looking to identify more closely with their patients, or for anyone who just wants a more personal account of the subject matter than that often offered by dry, sterile medical textbooks. Mark's writing style is quite good, but also highly personal. He doesn't seem aloof or like somebody with whom we can't identify (as many people who have experienced mental illnesses inevitably do): he seems like just one of us. The emotions and problems he was going through are certainly things that many of us can relate to (especially those of us who lived through the times that the the book describes) - although the cause for his schizophrenia was never, of course, fully discovered, a lot of things, as Mark says, "happened all at once": his steady girlfriend cheating on him, his parents breaking up, his father becoming famous. Although Mark's writing style is nothing like his father's, the two do share a similar sense of humor. This, coupled with the delightfully personal aspect of the prose, makes this a great read for those interested in its subject matter. Reccommended.

The Eden Express

VONNEGUT, MARK

New York: Praeger Publishers,. Very Good in Good dust jacket. 1975. Hard Cover. 0275225305 . 214 pages, cloth, dj, lacks front blank endpaper otherwise very good. From the dj: In 1969 Mark Vonnegut graduated from Swarthmore College. Bored with East Coast academia, suspicious of his father's (Kurt Vonnegut) sudden literary notoriety, and determined to stay true to the principles of hippiedom, Mark headed for the wilds of British Columbia to build a commune and find his panacea. Two years later, on Valentine's Day, 1971, Vonnegut was committed to Hollywood Psychiatric Hospital in Vancouver - diagnosed severely schizophrenic. What is schizophrenia? Vonnegut himself has no simple answers, but his account gives us a startlingly clear and chilling vision of what it is to be mad, and he offers practical, down-to-earth suggestions for patients, friends, families, and medical professionals on how to deal with mental illness. .

The Eden Express A Memoir of Insanity

Mark Vonnegut

Seven Stories Press. Paperback. New. Paperback. 304 pages. Dimensions: 8.1in. x 5.5in. x 0.7in.The Eden Express describes from the inside Mark Vonneguts experience in the late 60s and early 70sa recent college grad; in love; living communally on a farm, with a famous and doting father, cherished dog, and prized jalopyand then the nervous breakdowns in all their slow-motion intimacy, the taste of mortality and opportunity for humor they provided, and the grim despair they afforded as well. That he emerged to write this funny and true book and then moved on to find the meaningful life that for a while had seemed beyond reach is what ultimately happens in The Eden Express. But the real story here is that throughout his harrowing experience his sense of humor let him see the humanity of what he was going through, and his gift of language let him describe it in such a moving way that others could begin to imagine both its utter ordinariness as well as the madness we all share.
