Living to Tell: Confessions of an Alcoholic, Schizophrenic, Sexually Traumatized, Anxious, HIV-Infected Man
by Walter Kathan

Begun at the suggestion of his psychotherapist as a series of autobiographical vignettes, Walter Kathan’s Living to Tell is a moving portrait of a man struggling to escape the grip of addiction and mental illness in pursuit of a normal life. From his childhood traumas to the onset of schizophrenia in early adulthood, his crippling panic attacks to his self-medication with alcohol and his devastating HIV diagnosis, Kathan offers an unsparing account of his hellish journey to the depths of madness and despair. Yet amid the chaos and misery he must endure remains an ever-present ray of hope; he never gives up the fight to reclaim his life from the darkness. Kathan’s story is one of spirit and strength against all odds as he battles to overcome his demons—and lives to tell the tale.
