(Don't) Call Me Crazy: 02/24/20
(Don't) Call Me Crazy edited by Kelly Jensen is a collection of short essays by various authors and artists about their experiences with mental illness, learning disabilities, or with being neural divergent.
There are more than thirty of these stories. Some are essays. Some are personal accounts. Some are comics. Some are lists. Some are poems.
I found reading this book difficult for two reasons.
The first is just the sheer number of these pieces. As it's a short book in total number of pages, only 228 in total, there's not enough time spent on any particular story or any particular subject.
The second problem for me is the page layout — small typeface often one color on another color. It's hard on the eyes and sometimes impossible to read without the aid of a magnifying glass.
