books for schizophrenia?
I'm schizophrenic and much of his behaviour seemed similar to some of the symptoms. Though I agree it was not made with schizophrenia in mind, I believe that many of the symptoms are present.
Okay, that does make sense. Thank you for your hard-won insight and for making that distinction.
I'm thinking Philip K. Dick might be a good recommendation for OP, with maybe a similar caveat about what an actual diagnosis would be for the author or a (highly autobiographical) protagonist such as Horselover Fat. Have you read him, in particular VALIS? I'm deferring to your experience and wondering whether you think it might represent a true-to-life depiction of schizophrenia.
