Melody Moezzi was born to Persian parents at the height of the Islamic Revolution and raised 

 amid a vibrant, loving, and gossipy Iranian Diaspora in the American heartland. At 18, when 

 she  began battling a serious physical illness, her family andcommunity rallied  around  her,  

 filling  her  hospital rooms with roses, lilies, and hyacinths. But when she attempted suicideand was

 ultimately diagnosed with bipolar disorder after an acute manic episode and psychotic break,

 there were no flowers.

Based on interviews, recollections and her medical records,  Moezzi  recounts  her  mania  and depression,

 her manyhospitalizations and her current state of mind in HALDOL AND HYACINTHS: A Bipolar Life  in fascinating detail.
