Lithium for Medea is as much a tale of addiction-to sex, drugs, and dysfunctional family chains-as it is one of mothers and daughters, their mutual rebellion and unconscious mimicry. Here is the story according to Rose-the daughter of a narcissistic, emotionally crippled mother and a father who shadowboxes with death in hospital corridors-as she slips deeply and dangerously into the lair of a cocaine-fed artist in the bohemian squalor of Venice. Lithium for Medea sears us with Rose's breathless, fierce, visceral flight-like a drug that leaves one's perceptions forever altered.
