Marin Sardy · The Edge of Every Day

Friday, May 17 at 7:00pm
Join us to hear Marin Sardy, author of The Edge of Every Day: Sketches of Schizophrenia (Pantheon, $25.95).

In a uniquely crafted memoir consisting of essays,  family interviews, and exquisite, self-contained chapters, Pushcart Prize nominee and local author Marin Sardy weaves a fearless and heartbreaking account of the lifelong struggle with schizophrenia experienced by two of her family members. Expertly combining prose, philosophy, and psychology, Sardy compassionately approaches the illness that consumed her mother throughout her childhood and later began to reveal itself in her brother, ultimately taking his life.

Marin Sardy’s writings have appeared in Tin House, The Rumpus, The Missouri Review, and more literary journals as well as two award-winning photography books. Her work has twice been listed among notable essays in The Best American Essays (Mariner Books).
