Stacie Anne Curtis, who was diagnosed with schizophrenia as a teenager and passed away in 1993 at the age of thirty-three, has been writing poems all her life, which are now compiled in the new book “I, the Schizophrenic: A Book of Poems,” which serves both as a loving tribute from her brother, and as a testament to the flashes of creativity and deep emotion in those whom society calls challenged.

Author Stacie Anne Curtis, a homespun poet and lover of nature, wrote frequently about love and loss, friendship and memories, as well as her dreams of happiness and longing for well-being. Harboring a brilliant mind fettered by her disease, she demonstrates in sober language the full spectrum of human emotion, from glee to misery, as well as the complicated nuances of a person living with her condition: “I get by / For I am me / And not what others / Want to see. / I often do things / That are wrong, / But that is how / I get along. / I talk, I joke, / I laugh, I cry, / And I manage / To get by.”

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Stacie Anne Curtis’s poetry, lovingly saved by her mother, and compiled and published by her brother, will allow the reader to catch a glimpse of the surprisingly deep humanity and tenderness of emotion, including all the usual fears and trials, in those society often misguidedly considers somewhat lacking in these respects.

Readers who wish to experience this moving work can purchase“I, the Schizophrenic: A Book of Poems” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
