Emily Wing SmithAll Better Now From the "Weird Smart Girl," to the "Thank God She was Hit by a Car Girl," to "Woo-Head" and "Bad Hand" - there was always something wrong with Emily Wing Smith.  In this memoir, complete with pages from her childhood medical history, Emily Wing Smith faces describes the struggles she faced to become "All Better Now," how relative that is when dealing with physical and mental illness, and how important writing and story-telling have been in the process. 

In our coversation, Emily highlights the paradox of how we view mentail illness. When her behavioral problems were blamed on a near-fatal brain tumor, somehow that was less "her fault."
