Rubin ISBN: 978-1-84747-180-2Published: 2007Pages: 93Key Themes: poetry, manic depression, bi-polar disorder, humour, self-harm, North American authorDescriptionIve written a book, but its not the usual kind of Ive got this disorder, this is how I deal. My book is funny and it rhymes. I think it helps people. Those Ive shared it with said its made it easier to understand the illness without making it obvious that thats what I am doing.

I rhyme a lot, make fun of psychiatry and talk about the hospital as an imperfect place that doesnt promise a cure, but does the best it can. I make fun of the food, my own doctor, and talk about friends Ive made, and lost. My last poem talks about self-injury, which to some people might be disturbing, but it is a part of my illness, so I write about it.I Go from Bad to Verse is not like any other book - it makes my story approachable- in between readable verses, I explain how I came to write each poem. I think anyone can pick it up and grasp what someone with a chronic illness goes through.

Just because an illness is a mental one shouldnt stop it from being understandable and have people relate to it. Donna S. RubinAbout the AuthorDonna S. Rubin is 48 and lives in a suburb of New York City. She was diagnosed with bipolar-disorder approximately 12 years ago and her poetry reflects issues dealing with having a mental illness. She is a college graduate and even though she wasnt diagnosed in college, in retrospect she went through a major depression in her freshman year.

Currently she is between jobs, trying to figure out what her next step is before becoming a famous author!Book ExtractI wrote this poem during my freshman year in college, when I first encountered depression and all the uncertainty it brought. This was before I was ever even in therapy, and the questions that I ask in it are so much the struggle I came to later that I had to include it here. It is one of the few poems Ive ever written that doesnt rhyme.
