Circles Around the Sun: In Search of a Lost Brother

Rating: 3 out of 5.

American-born and Ireland-based author Molly McCluskey pours her heart out in this affecting memoir about her brother Mike, who suffers with paranoid schizophrenia.

Fourteen years her senior Mike was always a much-loved, if somewhat distant figure in young Molly’s life. As the years roll on Molly experiences her own struggle with mental health. Genetic, drug- or alcohol-induced, Molly may never be certain but it doesn’t matter. All that matters to Molly is gaining a better understanding of her family’s relationship with mental illness and being brave enough to address her own demons.

She does this with honesty and compassion as she records the story of her loving family.
