Writing and mental illness make companionable bedfellows, for better or worse. The Rapids is Twford Smith's personal memoir of manic depression, peppered with his family history and with film and literary criticism. With reflections on artists such as Carrie Fisher, Kanye West, Robert Lowell, Delmore Schwartz, Paul Thomas Anderson and Spalding Gray, Twyford-Moore also looks at the condition in our digital world, where someone’s manic episode can unfold live in real time, watched by millions. Smart, lively and well-researched, The Rapids explores a condition that touches thousands of people, directly or indirectly.
