Among Greenberg's unforgettable gallery of characters are an unconventional psychiatrist, an Orthodox Jewish patient, a manic Classics professor, a movie producer, and a landlord with literary aspirations. Unsentimental, nuanced, and deeply humane, Hurry Down Sunshine holds the listener in a mesmerizing state of suspension between the mundane and the transcendent.
A gorgeously constructed, imagistic, and lyrical account of Sally Greenberg's first manic break, this work, narrated by Michael Greenberg, is about acceptance and growth in the face of mental illness.

This personal rendering of Sally's struggle with mania is inspiring. It reveals that the journey is not hers alone, but also tangled with the journeys of her father and others in her family. Told with aching honesty in the voice of the writer, her devoted father.
