Review

"Behrman writes so vividly that his turbulent mood swings are brought to the page unnervingly intact…This true story is remarkable" -- The Times

"Electroboy is the story of a very modern lost soul" -- Sunday Telegraph

...a humbling and, in the end, rather uplifting read -- Melanie McGrath in The Evening Standard

...his tales of drugs, sex'n'spending sprees are as fascinating and as repellent as a road accident -- The Face

Behrman's chronicle of his descent into madness reads like a kind of Rake's Progress for the late 20th century -- Matt Seaton in Esquire Magazine

The book...is compulsively readable...Electroboy is the story of a very modern lost soul -- Anthony Daniels in the Sunday Telegraph

This true story is remarkable. -- Jerome Boyd Maunsell in The Times --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Publisher

"Electroboy is like a non-fiction version of American Psycho…His life is a metaphor for the ‘80s – everything is overblown and out of control. But Electroboy is also a sensitive account of manic depression – medication, analysis, an obsession with suicide and, finally, electric shock treatment. This fusion is pure genius." Dazed & Confused

"Andy Behrman’s Electroboy truly is an astonishing piece of writing…That it really happened to the author is, quite frankly, astounding, tragic and hilarious by turns…even sober and sane he is totally outrageous…He makes Elizabeth Wurtzel, America’s queen of drugs and depression, look like Mary Poppins" Sunday Express --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
