Sister Crazy

by Emma Richler

This book takes you into the troubled soul of Jemima Weiss, whose intense love for her family limits her ability to cope in life as an adult. Charming whimsical and funny, its sincerity and warmth brings light to the, otherwise dark, theme of mental illness.


Here comes Harriet and she has Mum on the end of her little hand. She has a beaming expression, like she made Mum all by herself and wants everyone to see her fine work. And it is fine work. I can't help it. I am just crazy about this woman. Whenever I see her, I get this pain. It's not a bad pain, just a prickly feeling like I am all of a sudden aware of my heart.
