“I am reading Monkey Mind: A Memoir of Anxiety by Daniel Smith. He hooked me in the opening scene with arguably the least erotic ménage-a-trois ever put to writing — as experienced by the author as a 16-year-old virgin who has only used a condom under ‘experimental conditions’ and is ramping up to a full-blown panic attack before contact is made. I would have never guessed that spending so much time inside the head of someone with crippling anxiety could be so entertaining. But ultimately, it is an incisive personal look at how our minds work against us.”
