Sorrow and Bliss Overview

Through the eyes of Martha, a 40-year-old woman who has struggled with being different since adolescence, Megan Mason offers a sobering, yet often humorous perspective on mental illness. Sorrow and bliss are inextricably wound together in a narrative that betrays itself, exploring the equally tight-knit themes of family, marriage, and motherhood.
