As her droopy-faced basset hound, Bubbles, snores on a chair, Kay Redfield
Jamison, PhD, relates a favorite cartoon: a man in 19th-century garb smiles
at a raven and says, "Hello, birdie." The caption? "Poe on Prozac."
That single frame captures reels of Jamison's life. The theme, of connections
between art and mental health, is a favorite of Jamison's—the topic
of her 1993 book Touched With Fire and a subsequent
public television series she produced with her late husband, schizophrenia
researcher Richard J. Wyatt, MD.
