Little Panic: Dispatches from an Anxious Life

In the vein of bestselling memoirs about mental illness like Andrew Solomon's Noonday Demon, Sarah Hepola's Blackout, and Daniel Smith's Monkey Mind comes a gorgeously immersive, immediately relatable, and brilliantly funny memoir about living life on the razor's edge of panic.The world never made any sense to Amanda Stern--how could she trust time to keep flowing, the sun to rise, gravity to hold her feet to the ground, or even her own body to work the way it was supposed to? Deep down, she knows that there's something horribly wrong with her, some defect that her siblings and friends don't have to cope with.Growing up in the 1970s and 80s in New York, Amanda experiences the magic and madness of life through the filter of unrelenting panic. Plagued with fear that her friends and family will be taken from her if she's not watching-that her mother will die, or forget she has children and just move away-Amanda treats every parting as her last. Shuttled between a barefoot bohemian life with her mother in Greenwich Village, and a sanitized, stricter world of affluence uptown with her father, Amanda has little she can depend on. And when Etan Patz disappears down the block from their MacDougal Street home, she can't help but believe that all her worst fears are about to come true. Tenderly delivered and expertly structured, Amanda Stern's memoir is a document of the transformation of New York City and a deep, personal, and comedic account of the trials and errors of seeing life through a very unusual lens....

Little Panic: Dispatches from an Anxious Life Reviews

  • Lorraine DeMoranville

    Reading this book was tedious and exhausting. The fact that she appears to come from an intelligent family and never got the help or diagnosis she needed until she was 25, is confusing and puzzling.

    I could not wait for it to end, and was amazed that she ever got the book published and that People magazine recommended it. Many people have overcome many more tragedies in their lives than Amanda, and even at the end of the book,she has not moved on.I would not recommend this book to anyone.

    Wow! Not a brilliant literary word, but the first word that flowed from my hand as I started to write this review. Little Panic is a brilliant, articulate, honest, and heartbreaking memoir about living with crippling anxiety. As detailed in her book, Stern exhibited symptoms of an anxiety disorder from a very young age, but was constantly tested and told she had a learning disability.

    Chapters in this book segue smoothly between her youth, and life as an adult; this ably demonstrates the lasting

    As someone who deals with severe anxiety and was not able to put a name on it for most of their childhood, this book broke me. Reading Amanda’s story of a cry for safety and to be understood was something I felt deeply in every page, and could relate to with her breathtaking vulnerability. Her early years are spent trying to find her safe person, someone to give her name to all of these consuming thoughts, while her adult years are spent trying to find someone to accept it. Those of us who suffe ...more
