Where Is the Mango Princess?

A Journey Back From Brain Injury

Description

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.

Customer Reviews

Incredible

I loved this book. It was a required reading assignment for a neuro course and I actually wasn't looking forward to it. I finished it in just three days because I couldn't put it down. I'm so grateful for this assignment and for Cathy sharing her story. I laughed out loud. I cried. It was heart-breaking, sad, hilarious, and inspiring. Cathy is such a brave and strong woman. Al is such an incredible man! I recommend this story to anyone.
