Since its publication, the German jurist Daniel Paul Schreber’s Memoirs of My Nervous Illness ­– according to Rosemary Dinnage “the most written about document in all psychiatric literature” – has been enmeshed in a complicated set of textual, intellectual and historical webs, and has been misread in any number of important and interesting ways. If you try to read Schreber’s dense, contradictory, and often disturbing writings on the nature of God, and one man’s relationship with him, you’ll misread it, too.
