Description
"For a time, Don and Mimi Galvin seemed to be living a dream life of domestic harmony and upward mobility in Colorado. Their twelve children perfectly spanned the baby boom: the oldest was born in 1945, the youngest in 1965. But by the mid-1970s, six of the ten Galvin boys were diagnosed with schizophrenia. And inside the walls of a once happy home, a devastating story of psychological breakdowns, sudden acts of shocking violence, and hidden abuse played out. Written with clarity and compassion by bestselling and award-winning author Robert Kolker, Hidden Valley Road uncovers one family's unforgettable legacy of suffering, love, and hope. The heartrending story of the Galvins also contains an illuminating shadow history of the science of schizophrenia. What took place inside Don and Mimi Galvin's home on Hidden Valley Road was so astonishing that their family became one of the first to be studied by the National Institute of Mental Health. And, unbeknownst to them, the Galvins would become science's great hope, informing decades of research in the quest to understand, and perhaps even someday cure, this mysterious disease for future generations"--Back cover
