DESCRIPTIONS Author : Anne Fadiman Pages : 341 pages Publisher : Noonday Press Language : eng ISBN-10 : 12609.The_Spirit_Catches_You_and_You_Fall_Down ISBN-13 : 9780374525644 Lia Lee was born in 1982 to a family of recent Hmong immigrants, and soon developed symptoms of epilepsy. By 1988 she was living at home but was brain dead after a tragic cycle of misunderstanding, over-medication, and culture clash: "What the doctors viewed as clinical efficiency the Hmong viewed as frosty arrogance." The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down is a tragedy of Shakespearean dimensions, written with the deepest of human feeling. Sherwin Nuland said of the account, "There are no villains in Fadiman's tale, just as there are no heroes. People are presented as she saw them, in their humility and their frailty?and their nobility.
