This is a fascinating non-fiction story of paranoid psychosis brought on by prescription drugs. It explores the realms of philosophy, theology, and psychology in a voice that is both factual and humorous. Guppy is a practicing psychotherapist now, but he once lived and walked the halls of the mental ward in Seattle’s Providence Hospital. My Fluorescent God is crafted from the detailed journals he kept during that time, and the interviews he conducted after his release.
