520 1 |a "They called him crazy. As a child, he probably was. At eight, the author left his family to spend thirteen years at the most famous school in the world for emotionally disturbed children. Not the Thing I Was describes life in Bruno Bettelheim's Orthogenic School in Chicago. Among autistics, schizophrenics - some truly whacked-out kids - and a dedicated staff, he lived in a world that didn't use drugs, had no locks on the doors, and had fine china and crystal on the dinner table. The staff believed that if you wanted to help a child, you had to understand how that child saw the world and perhaps persuade him or her that there might be other ways to interpret it that could lead to a more successful life. Bettelheim had been in the concentration camps and thought that if the Nazis could build an environment to destroy personality, he could create one to build it. He did, and in Not the Thing I Was, Eliot tells a fascinating coming-of-age story that is a cross between One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and Ciderhouse Rules. It is an intimate day-by-day look at a world directed by a charismatic and controversial Viennese psychoanalyst who battled his own demons as well as those of his children. Unique as the first and only work by one of Bettelheim's patients, Not the Thing I Was takes us on a survival trip, wherein Eliot emerges successfully from this private closed environment into the outside world - and acceptance as an undergraduate at Yale University."--BOOK JACKET.
