I have known Pete Earley even before he married my college room-mate. I've followed his career from a by line Journalist in Tulsa Oklahoma to his now many books written not just from a Journalist's dry view, he is able to put a personal face to each of the people he has written about over the years.
I knew about Michael's problems at the time that they happened and how frightened his parents and family were for him. I am so glad that Pete followed his wife's suggestion and wrote about this terrible problem in mental health care. He has personalized it in a way that only a family member could.
In 2007 this book was one of three finalists for that year's Pulitzer. Although his book was not chosen, it was a wonderful honor that Pete well deserved.
