"Mira Rothenberg’s insightful and unique ability to turn the suffering psyche into a landscape which must be entered and explored was fundamental to the understanding of mental illness I brought to A Beautiful Mind. She is also one hell of a mother."
—Akiva Goldsman, Rothenberg’s son, and Academy Award winner, Best Adapted Screenplay, for A Beautiful Mind
"Vivid and profoundly moving…I found myself looking at the ordinary children I know with renewed respect and wonder…The line of separation, this book teaches us, is very thin indeed."
—Henry Mayer, The New York Times Book Review
