The New York Post published a story on Tuesday with the headline “Unsanitized.”
The piece’s main subject is a series by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Robert Harris about his father, who is schizophrenic, and his relationship with a therapist.
The story details how his father struggles with a mental illness, which Harris himself is also battling.
In this piece, he talks about the “unsanitized” state of American literature and how “the best writers have the most to say about the world we live in.”
Harris describes himself as a “philosopher of the absurd.”
He tells the story of how he wrote the novel “Unssanitized,” and how it resonated with him.
He says the book inspired his own work and helped him “get past my own struggles.”
He explains, “It was one of the most profoundly moving, moving books I ever wrote.”
And the story goes on to say that “the way I see the world is not only my own, it’s also how you see it.”
The New Yorker’s Scott Tobias told The Huffington, “If you’re going to write a book about a mentally ill person, it might as well be a book of fiction.
It’s about how you feel and the world around you.”
He went on to add, “That’s how I read and relate to a lot of the stuff I read.”
Harris said that the piece made him feel “wonderful” and “a bit of a different person.”
The author also told the story about how his brother-in-law, who has bipolar disorder, had difficulty dealing with his father’s mental illness.
He said, “He couldn’t figure out why I wasn’t happy.
He’d ask me how I was feeling and I’d say, ‘Well, I don’t think you can talk about that.'”
He explained how he “took him off medication for a couple of years.”
Harris also says that the story helped him understand how “we treat people with mental illnesses.”
And he added, “A lot of what we’re dealing with in the mental health industry, I’m not sure why we’re doing it at all.
It doesn’t make sense.”
The Times piece said that its reporting “was not intended to be an endorsement of the books themselves.”
The NYT did not respond to requests for comment from HuffPost.
Harris is not the only author to be involved in this project.
In an article for The New Republic, literary critic Christopher Hitchens said that “Unsafe at Any Speed” is “one of the best pieces of writing I have ever read.”
The book “explores the nature of mental illness in the world,” he wrote.
“Its central themes are those of mental health, and they’re often very personal.
Harris said the project inspired him to write another book about his family. “
Ununssanitized: The Strange Story of a Man’s Life on the Edge” is out now from Random House.
Harris said the project inspired him to write another book about his family.
He wrote the story, “UnSanitized,” with a family member.
“The book was a response to the suicide of my father, and it came to be my life’s work,” he told HuffPost.
“And that was one thing I really wanted to do.”
