The Collected Schizophrenias by Esmé Weijun Wang
Recommended by Chloe N:
A very insightful, empathetic portrait of living with schizoaffective disorder. Wang unpacks a great deal in a short set of essays, and she does so with great intelligence and craft. Not only do you get your DSM-5 definitions, but a variety of personal anecdotes and pop culture references that add to the complexity and understanding of the issue.
