Like Crazy: Life With My Mother and Her Invisible Friends


Dan Mathews Libri


&;Exquisite. Full of wry humor, tenderness, and compassion.&; &;Jeannette Walls, New York Times bestselling author A hilarious and heartbreaking memoir about a mother and son&;s outlandish odyssey of self-discovery, and the rag-tag community that rallied to help them when they needed it most. Dan Mathews knew that his witty, bawdy seventy-eight year-old mother, Perry, was unable to maintain her fierce independence&;so he flew her across the country to Virginia to live with him in an 1870 townhouse badly in need of repairs. But to Dan, a screwdriver is a cocktail not a tool, and he was soon overwhelmed with two fixer-uppers: the house and his mother. Unbowed, Dan and Perry built a rollicking life together fueled by costume parties, road trips, and an unshakeable sense of humor as they faced down hurricanes, blizzards, and Perry&;s steady decline. They got by with the help of an ever-expanding circle of sidekicks&;Dan&;s boyfriends (past and present), ex-cons, sailors, strippers, deaf hillbillies, evangelicals, and grumpy cats&;while flipping the parent-child relationship on its head. But it wasn&;t until a kicking-and-screaming trip to the emergency room that Dan discovered the cause of his mother&;s unpredictable, often caustic behavior: undiagnosed schizophrenia. Irreverent and emotionally powerful, Like Crazy is a &;journey to self-acceptance and ultimately finding love&; (Alan Cumming) and shows the remarkable growth that takes place when a wild child settles down to care for the wild woman who raised him.
