praise for
The Edge of Every Day: Sketches of Schizophrenia

“A revelation .… Deeply moving .… This book changed how I thought about schizophrenia in
a way first-person accounts couldn’t do.” — E.B. Bartels, Electric Literature

“Beautiful and tragic” — The Wall Street Journal

“Sardy delivers an extraordinarily ambitious and accomplished narrative … illuminating mental illness from the inside out … An impressive debut.” — Kirkus Reviews (starred)

“A powerful examination of intergenerational mental illness, an incisive criticism of the treatment of mentally ill in society and in the healthcare system, and a poignant
ode to love and family.” — Bustle

“Intelligent, deeply felt, and beautifully written” — Anchorage Daily News

“With an expert hand, Sardy breathes life and urgency into her simultaneously intimate and expansive telling of how the echoes of mental illness have reverberated through a family.”
— Jillian Karande, BuzzFeed

“By ignoring traditional narrative structure, jumping back and forward in time, subject and thought, Sardy skillfully reflects the ‘narrative crisis’ that occurs in people with mental illness.” — Helen Thomson, The New York Times Book Review

“An essential addition to the sub-genre of mental health memoirs.”

“Sardy…forces readers to consider mental illness more familiarly: What if your brother, or your mother, was psychotic? Odds are, you’d think differently about how our society addresses—or fails to address—mental health.” — Alison Van Houten, Outside

“A deeply compassionate book about what it means to love someone who is mentally ill — about how hard it is to truly understand another person’s mind and the importance of continuing to try.” — Emily Anthes, UnDark
