How to Travel Light
My Memoirs of Madness and Melancholia
Diagnosed as bipolar at twenty-three, a young journalist struggles for a decade, fighting a cycle of depression, and euphoria. In this candid, stylish journey, we visit diverse former loves and eccentric fellow sufferers; mental health institutions and Benares; his moments with Diana Eck and Deepika Padukone-and reckonings with past wounds. Part confession, part joy-ride and wholly enjoyable, this compelling debut announces a formidable new talent.
