In 1993, Jimmy Breslin wrote a front page story for "New York Newsday" about Melanie Cane, a troubled young psychiatrist who 'let love take her too far.' Fifteen years later, Melanie tells her side of the story in Poisoned Love, a heartbreaking and staggering account of her spiral into the depths of mental illness and what she did under the guise of love.
With extraordinary courage, Melanie provides intimate access to the thoughts and feelings leading to her desperate act, as well as an unvarnished account of her subsequent psychiatric treatment and the legal and social consequences of her crime.
Melanie's steady process toward recovery involves an emerging understanding of the relationship between her various diagnoses and her attachment to an abusive and mentally ill father. Her story teaches people about survival and success in the face of severe mental illness.
