Summary
The heartbreaking memoir of a prominent scholar's long journey to put the pieces of his fractured life together. In 1989, Oxnam, successful China scholar and president of the Asia Society, faced up to what he thought was his biggest personal challenge: alcoholism. But this dependency masked a problem far more serious: multiple personality disorder. At the peak of his professional career, Oxnam was haunted by periodic blackouts and episodic rages. After his family and friends intervened, Oxnam received help from a psychiatrist and entered a rehab center. It wasn't until six months later that the first of Oxnam's eleven alternate personalities--an angry young boy named Tommy--suddenly emerged. With the therapist's help, Oxnam began the exhausting and fascinating process of uncovering his many personalities and the childhood trauma that caused his condition.--From publisher description
