A taut, powerful memoir of madness, Angelheaddocuments the violent, drug-addled descent of the author's brother, Michael, into schizophrenia. Beginning with Michael's first psychotic break—seeing God in his suburban bedroom window while high on LSD—Greg Bottoms recounts, in gripping, dramatic prose, the bizarre disappearances, suicide attempts, and the shocking crime that land Michael in the psychiatric wing of a maximum security prison. A work of nonfiction with the form and imagery of a novel, Angelheadenables the reader to witness not only the fragmenting of a mind, but of a family as well."A tour-de-force memoir. . . . Bottoms writes like a poet, he writes like he is on fire."—Esquire,Book of the Year, 2000"Angelheadis a brilliant, albeit inconceivably sad book. The fact that Bottoms survived the ordeal is incredible. But the fact that he could write about it with such pathos and insight is nothing less than extraordinary."—Atlanta Journal-Constitution"Greg Bottoms has provided a biographical novel about his brother that may be as close as most of us will ever get to knowing what it is to be truly mad. Angelheadis a story nearly as terrifying as the disease it describes."—Psychology Today

Greg Bottoms' writing has been published in "Salon," "Feed," "Nerve," & "The Beacon Best of 1999." He lives in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.
