Book DescriptionWhenever he left the hospital, he stopped taking the heavy doses of tranquilizers and other mood-altering drugs. They relieved his ever-growing sadness, but only by making it impossible for him to feel anything at all. Toward his life’s end he would describe his state of mind at this time as “being caught in a nightmare,” one that began during his military service—got worse as the post-war years went by—and abated, finally, as old age arrived. But during his thirties and forties, his gypsy years, he had no words to describe what was happening to him.—From Chapter 6
