Review by danconsiglio
Very scary, very visceral description of Vonnegut's struggles w/ schizophrenia. I feel a little guilty about being so entertained by someone else's suffering, but this is why Behind the Music is so successful. Mark's writing deals much more w/ internal action than his dad's. He spends a lot of time studying his own perceptions of and reactions to the world around him. His writing becomes very ominous in that you can never tell when the walls are going to gradually start melting and the giant laughing purple face will show up again. Very different than Kurt's holistic rejection of suspense.
