    This is an amazing book; brilliant, rich and riveting. I read "Sexual Politics" in 1970, but as an author and someone who is writing a memoir herself, I was delighted and dazzled by "The Looney Bin Trip."

    As a person with manic depression, I can identify with some of the things Kate Millett had to say. However, I found her attitude about mental illness rather annoying. In this book, it is clear that she finds a diagnosis of manic depression infuriating and shameful. She finds lithium, a drug that has saved countless lives, to be nothing short of political oppression. She ends by saying that the illness does not really exist.
