Magnificent Portrayal of Schizophrenia
Lowboy is one of the best books I have ever read. It is about Lowboy, so named because he likes to ride the subways of New York City and be underground. He has disappeared from his psychiatric hospital and both his mother and a police detective are looking for him in tandem. The book is beautifully written, the plot never stops going, and the character development is fascinating.
