The telling of Danny's life, his psychotic breakdown, schizophrenic diagnosis and, finally, a stable, happy life without medication.

The Danny Diaries is a book about a gifted, delightful child who had a teenage psychotic breakdown and was diagnosed as schizophrenic. This is a detective story for the reader. Why did he break down? Was it drugs? Was it growing up too quickly? Did he have too much adulation too young? Was society to blame? And how did he recover? Once more the reader has a detective story to help him or her decide. His mother wrote down his spoken words from when he was fifteen months old, and she has chosen a selection of these both to delight and help the reader.

Ann Cluver Weinberg is a South African author of poetry, stories and biographies who has been published and broadcast in South Africa.
