Hurry Down Sunshine Summary À 108 Cters includes an unconventional psychiatrist an Orthodox Jewish patient a manic Classics professor a movie producer and a landlord with literary aspirations Unsentimental nuanced and deeply humane Hurry Down Sunshine is essential reading in the literature of affliction with such classics as Girl Interrupted and An Unuiet Min. I wanted to read Hurry Down Sunshine because I too wrote a memoir regarding the illness of a child in my daughter s case it was cancer and I am also figuring out whether I have enough material to write a book regarding the temporary but traumatic breakdown in my mother s mental health when I was 11 I admired the fact that Greenberg chose to write the story of his daughter s psychosis It is a burden and a responsibility to write about family but readers welcome such bravery and openness Greenberg is a good writer As a craftman I have few complaints about the book As a storyteller however I was left unfulfilled Greenberg fills his pages with all the necessary characters his wife ex wife brother parentsand of course his daughter But I felt as if I was dropped into their lives with no back story This made it particularly difficult to understand the progression of the daughter s illness and what Greenberg was like as a father to her except that languageexpression was a common ground Since there is no before except for a few indications that the daughter was different it is hard to interpret the present If you don t know a character you can t take the journey with them But this is a memoir about the father so was it possible to journey with him Here again I would have to say no We are told about a very complicated family set up with two children in different parents homes who then switch homes There s a step mother whom Greenberg my love but instead he appears to feel ambivalent about She comes out with caustic comments for which we lack the understanding to interpret or weigh He hits her at one point and several weeks later she says she wants to have a baby with him I wanted to understand about his anger and about her process for arriving at what was a basically a recommitment to him There s a new age mother in Vermont with her new husband who seems to get off easy And there s a brother who himself is psychotic whom Greenberg seems to spend time talking about than his daughter And there s a son who is basically non existent until he suddenly appears Context is critical and maybe Greenberg thought he was providing it by giving us all these people in his life but they had no pulse and contributed little to the heartbeat of the book
