Where Is the Mango Princess?: A Journey Back from Brain Injury

Where Is the Mango Princess?: A Journey Back from Brain Injury Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Humorist Cathy Crimmins has written a deeply personal, wrenching, and often hilarious account of the effects of traumatic brain injury, not only on the victim, in this case her husband, but on the family.

When her husband Alan is injured in a speedboat accident, Cathy Crimmins reluctantly assumes the role of caregiver and learns to cope with the person he has become. No longer the man who loved obscure Japanese cinema and wry humor, Crimmins' husband has emerged from the accident a childlike and unpredictable replica of his former self with a short attention span and a penchant for inane cartoons. Where Is the Mango Princess? is a breathtaking account that explores the very nature of personality-and the complexities of the heart.

About the Author

Cathy Crimmins lives with her husband and daughter in Pennsylvania.
