Charles Monroe-Kane is a natural raconteur, and boy, does he have stories to tell.

Born into an eccentric Ohio clan of modern hunter-gatherers, he grew up hearing voices in his head.

Over a dizzying two decades, he was many things-teenage faith healer, world traveler, smuggler, liberation theologian, ladder-maker, squatter, halibut hanger, grifter, environmental warrior, and circus manager-all the while wrestling with schizophrenia and self-medication. From Baby Doc's Haiti to the Czech Velvet Revolution, and from sex, drugs, and a stabbing to public humiliation by the leader of the free world, Monroe-Kane burns through his twenties and several bridges of youthful idealism before finally saying: enough. In a memoir that blends engaging charm with unflinching frankness, Monroe-Kane gives his testimony of mental illness, drug abuse, faith, and love.

By the end of Lithium Jesus there may be a voice in your head, too, saying 'Do more, be more, live more. And fear less.'
