Books over Breakfast: 'Lost in Schizophrenia'

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

"Lost in Schizophrenia" author Van Bennett writes from personal experience.

Bennett started displaying symptoms of schizophrenia at 22. He says voices in his head were telling him "he was chosen."  

After two years, Bennett began chronicling his experiences. Although it took nearly a decade for a correct diagnosis, this memoir describes how living with the disease influenced one man's life.

Bennett says he hopes to see this memoir turned into a movie someday. His dream for the leading role would be Jay Hernandez from the 2001 film "Crazy/ Beautiful."
