A riveting story. For almost fifty years Paul LaPointe wondered what was wrong with him while he struggled with the consequences of undiagnosed bi-polar disorder. He lost relationships, lived a life of extremes and cycled in and out of jail as a result of his bizarre behaviour. While his memoir, From Cell to Sanity, details some of his wilder moments, it is also a chronicle of hope for others who either live with this condition or who are close to someone who does.
Paul Lapointe is a Canadian. This is his debut writing work. After years in and out of prison, Paul Lapointe now lives in Alberta, under treatment and rehabilitated.
