In and of itself, Mark Vonnegut's The Eden Express (1975) - a harrowing account of his experience with mental illness - is captivating. Well-written and perceptive, it expresses a unique view of a particular kind of mental disorder and has been hailed as a "textbook" of sorts for those suffering from or working with victims of schizophrenia. However, beyond its individual merits, The Eden Express serves as an interesting complement to the novels and ideas of Mark's father, novelist Kurt Vonnegut.
