I spun around, growing dizzy, frantic, and silly. I wasnt drunk, but I felt a nice stoned feeling, sans paranoia, and I thought, I believe Ive found my new pharmaceutical deep inside.

I giggled fearlessly, manically at this and looked down at myself- hands, arms, chest, and belly covered in crimson . . . Sharp is the story of a young man who began his life with a loving family and great promise for the future. But in his early twenties, David Fitzpatrick became so consumed by mental illness it sent him into a frenzy of cutting himself with razor blades.

In this shocking and often moving book, he vividly describes the rush this act gave him, the fleeting euphoric high that seemed to fill the spaces in the rest of his life. It started a difficult battle from which he would later emerge triumphant and spiritually renewed.Fitzpatricks youth seemed ideal. He was athletic, handsome, and intelligent. However, he lived in fear of an older brother who taunted and belittled him- and in college, his roommates teased and humiliated him, further damaging what sense of self-esteem he still carried with him.

As he shares these experiences, Fitzpatrick also recounts the lessons learned from the broken people he encountered during his journey—knowledge that led to his own emotional resurrection.Sharp also demonstrates the awakening of a writers instinctive voice. With prose that is tough and gritty, profound and insightful, Fitzpatrick takes us inside his head while he manically cuts himself, but these episodes are presented with a dignity and insight that has never been seen before. His writing also possesses a lightness of touch that brings humor to a subject that doesnt naturally provide it.Above all else, Sharp is a tale of hope, a soul-baring quest of a lost man who returns to himself, overcomes his demons, and reclaims his life.

It is destined to become a classic memoir.
