About the Book
Cheney’s first book, Manic: A Memoir, a searing account of her mental illness, quickly became a New York Times bestseller, was optioned by HBO, and translated into eight foreign languages. Following Manic’s publication, Terri received hundreds of emails from parents of bipolar children, asking about her own childhood. In response, she wrote The Dark Side of Innocence: Growing Up Bipolar, a truly fascinating exploration of her bipolar childhood.
